Asus or DFI

I've been considering replacing my old Asus P5NSLI(<--complete crap) for a while now and this week it just decided to die on me. SOO, I'm looking for a replacement that will allow me to OC my Core 2 e6600 as far as air cooling will allow.

I've pretty much narrowed it down to the DFI LP DK X48-T2RSB PLUS and the ASUS P5Q Pro. I'd prefer the X48 chipset of the DFI but I'm not completely sure if I will be going X-fire or not in the future. I'm going to be running the Sapphire HD 4870 1GB for now and I might double up in the future, but I'm not sure. I also like all the added features of the P5Q Pro and it is quite a bit cheaper. (104.99 after $15 MIR and free shipping)

It's roughly a $60 difference between these boards and I've heard good things about both. I also plan on running my system with the Xigmatek HDT-S1283. Any advise or other recommendations would be greatly appreciated. (My mobo budget is under $200)
