I heard that the XFX version of the 680i LT is not as good as the EVGA version, however with recent issues of EVGA RMA's for Canadians I wouldn't go with EVGA either. Also the NVIDIA 680i chipset will not support the new 45nm Yorkfields coming out. I would recommend getting a motherboard with a P35 chipset. They are a lot cheaper then motherboards with the 680i chipsets are better overclockers.

Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L - $104.34 @ NCIX I have used this board and it is a great overclocker. I was able to get the E2180 from 2.0GHz to 2.75GHz on stock cooling and stock voltage.

Others in the forums have used this board and other Gigabyte boards, not to mention others have used other P35 boards.

Next Build: E5200 @ 3.6GHz (333x11) | Xigmatek HDT-RS1283 HSF | Biostar TP43D2-A7 | Mushkin Redlines DDR2-1000 @ DDR2-999 5-5-5-12
EVGA 9600 GT 512MB - 650MHz - 1800MHz - 1626MHz | Seagate 'Cuda 250GB 7200rpm SATA2 | Corsair VX550 | CM690 - Custom Atomic Orange Pearl
