P5K Deluxe would be my choice if I wanted ASUS. Top of the P35 line.

I have been very happy with my P5k Deluxe and Q6600. As a beginner overclocker, I was able to get to 3.4GHz without any trouble (heat is fine, stock voltage).

I OC'd with great success with my Gigabyte P35-DS3R. Not nearly as pricey as the P5K Deluxe.

I recently got a Q6600 and wanted to buy a board for it. Can't find the P5k anywhere. I'm trying to keep my MB purchase below 125 and I was hoping for a firewire port. Want to overclock with air cooling to 3.4.
