RMA'd my Asus P5N32-E, not in stock, what to get instead?

Had to RMA my Asus P5N32-E back to Newegg.

This Mobo is not in stock so they will probably let me get a different model.

I want to O/C my E6600 to 3.2 or higher and do not plan to use SLI.
the second video slot would be useful for a 3rd monitor.

Should I get a P5W DH Deluxe or a P5B Deluxe? Or?

  1. The eVGA 680i board is similar as it has the same chipset although if you're not gonna go SLi it might just be overkill as it has 3 PCIe slots although I've heard some good things as to its overclocking potential and stability and its cheaper than the P5N32-E SLi board (@ newegg)

    Here is a link to an article about it:

    HardwareLogic.com

    It's the board I'm gonna get in my next build. Either this or a 650i board probably.
  2. My friend and I built our systems at the same time.

    I used the ASUS 680i board and he used the eVGA 680i board. He could not get the sound to work on the eVGA board and I had major problems with the Asus board.

    See link below:

    My friend changed to the ASUS P5W DH board and it is working great. So I would consider that as well.

    I would like to know if the newer chipset on the P5B offers any advantages over the older but more O/C able P5W?
