Question q6600 board recommendation

So aside from using a Intel board which of these would you use for a quad processor. Now I'm talking about doing video encoding, music recording and game playing and want this board to be ass problematic and rock solid as possible.

I'm thinking of the following:

eVGA 680i
Asus p5n32-SLI
Asus p5b Deluxe
Asus p5w DH Deluxe

I'm leaning more towards the p5n32-SLI or the p5w DH deluxe and remember there won't be any overclocking but SLI is a possiblity down the road.

So what you think?

My System Specs


hehe- you want it to be ass problematic as possible? try finding an original AR version of the 680i with the old p25 BIOS-- just kidding, I know it's a typo.

Are you not overclocking because of the heat issues? How soon are you getting the processor?

I personally have a P5W DH Deluxe with latest bios and i must say that it's running rock solid stable. I love it. My crossfire runs like a charm too on that board. It's also one of the (If not the) most easy board that i ever used. Settings are well organized in the bios. Basically, i think it's almost a board for novices or ppls that have not that much knowledge about bioses. Anyway, thats the only one i tried in the list you posted above. I'm talking personal experience so...
- Asus P8Z68-V PRO
- Intel I5 2500k @ 4.5Ghz
- Asus Geforce 580GTX DirectCUII Fermi
- 16GB Corsair Vengeance Low Profile
- Ultra X3 1000 Watt
- Asus Xonar DX 7.1 \ Klipsch Promedia 2.1 THX
- Corsair Vengeance 1300 Gaming Headset
- Crucial M4 SSD 128GB \ WD Caviar Black 1TB
- CoolerMaster 690II Advanced
- Dell UltraSharp 24''
- Noctua NH-D14
