My System Specs

If you love to overclock, be forewarned that you won't be able to with Sandy Bridge unless you buy an unlocked CPU (K series).

Basically, Sandy Bridge will be the mainstream boards, while the new X68 LGA2011 boards will be for the enthusiast. Intel screwed up and made their P55's too close in performance to the X58. I don't think that will be the case next generation. To be honest, I'd be really tempted to get a $200 X58 board and a i7 950.
This is pretty much speculation at the moment still. The same thing was said about Nehalem back in the day as well.
