Default Need advice on mobo?

I am thinking of purchasing a mobo from a used site in town, Here is the link for the MOBO.
NCIX.com - Buy Intel DG33TL mATX LGA775 G33 DDR2 PCI-E16 2PCI-E1 PCI SATA2 Sound Video RAID 1394 Motherboard - BOXDG33TLM In Canada.

I am wondering how well this would do for Overclocking compaired to my ASUS P5B?
I need to find a new/used MOBO as the little Clip to hold my GPU in has broken off. I can still use my MOBO but my GPU is not completely secured.
This person is selling this mobo and a Q6700 CPU for 300 bucks. Does that sound like a good deal?
BTW, Do you ASUS would RMA my MOBO since the little GPU clip broke off during regular use? I think they offer a 3 year Warranty on their products.
Thanx

No BIOS OC possible on that board. Maybe Set FSB, if it recongnizes the PLL chip.

I suggest you wait. Intel just sent us a sample of their new G45 board and from what I can tell it has a good amount of OCing options in the beta BIOS along with a wealth of other features.

Give me a day or 2 to put my new X-48 board in, then I'll have a GA-P35-DS3L to move for a very reasonable price. Faster than a G33 board and a very nice OC'er - see my sig.
