Graphics card is an important consideration. I would also look for a board that is able to do better than 1333 FSB. Almost any E8400 is capbable of good overclocking and you want to give yourself some overhead. A lot of boards are warratied up to 1600 fsb. I have a gigabyte x38 board and have been pretty happy. Ulitimately I decided based on crossfire and 2 x16 pci-e channels.
