Default Need a new LGA775 mobo (polling time) ...!

I need an affordable single GPU overclocker, with good layout and great OC'ing capabilities... to replace my 2nd faulty DFI DK P35-T2RS.

Choices are :

1 - Biostar I45
2 - Asus P5Q-E
3 - Asus P5Q-Deluxe
4 - Other

Help me out...!

Picked mine, but one question. How many SATA ports are you looking to use, are you gonna use any IDE ports too.

Basically if your answer to all SATA ports and no IDE ports, clearly Biostar, since the SATA ports placement on the P5Q-E is kinda poor.

All the ports on the P5Q-E and deluxe are accessable, except one, even with a monster card installed, although some people have a thing against the right angle ones

all the boards are a good choice. You could even go cheaper because in all honesty you probably wont get a much better overclock on a good $100 board compared to a $400 board.
