Best Motherboard Upgrade?


I am currently running the following setup that I am looking to upgrade:

ASRock ConRoeXFire-eSATA2 LGA 775 Intel 945P
Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 Conroe 2.4GHz
4gb DDR2
500+320 = 820gb total
Geforce 9600GT

I would like to upgrade to the Windows 7 64 bit OS from a Vista 32 bit OS beause its cheap now, and upgrade my motherboard so that I can overclock my e6600 up to the 3.0 - 3.2 ghz range. So I am looking for a good motherboard that can run this chip and takes 4 slots of DDR2, good amount of SATA ports, and pci express x16 2.0 would be good but not necessary, and overclocks easily. Also maybe a good cooling fan upgrade for the processor thats worth the upgrade from the stock cooler.

I'm a student, cash is short, and the lower the price the better :)

  1. Your ASRock motherboard should let you run Windows 7 64-bit.

    A couple of decent motherboards:

    Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3R:

    Assu P5Q:

    If you plan on overclocking, then the Gigabyte might be a slightly better choice.
