what are you requirements?
If you want to overclock then the MSI isn't great & the abit is good but not great. There is a new version out called the AB9 QuadGT which Gary Key @ Anandtech says is the fastest 965 mobo so far & iirc it's $185 at ewiz & $220 at newegg.

the ds3 is a good OCing board, if you where to get it you could downgrade on the cpu and OC it, and acheive similar performance.

No amount of overclocking will give you two more physical cores. :?

ds3 or p5b-e. Either one you cant go wrong with. Used both in great numbers and haven't had a problem with either. p5b-e has esata and IEEE 1394a (firewire) btw. never worked with the abit or msi boards so i will reserve judgement on those.
