Do you plan to go SLi in the future. And are you looking to do some extreme overclocking?

If OCing get a good P35 or X38(ie P35-DS3x or ASUS Formula,etc). If SLI you will need to get a 780i. You will also need DDR2 800 RAM. (I believe the FX-60 is a socket 939)

im not really interested in sli, which is better out of the ones you listed? i've been looking at the maximus formula, i like the extra features like the cmos switch but is the post lcd worth it?
