  1. Depends on if you want to go P35, or 680i, or x38..

    A nice, user friendly board, 680i board I recommend is below.

    A P35 board should support DDR3 but at this point that won't help you given that you already have the RAM, which I assume is not DDR3, but I could be wrong.

    EVGA 122-CK-NF68-A1 LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 680i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard

    This MoBo seems real user friendly, some good reviews, and a good price overall, plus some nice extras?

    Hope this helps
  2. I don't know if I'd go for that board. It's expensive and SLI or Crossfire only gets a 20-20% performance increase. I'd go for this, although I don't know about overclockability, that said:
