Ok.

The maximus II is a micro-ATX, that IMO isn't good for a good rig. So, I would get the rampage.

P.D. The LGA 775 is a old socket, if you want a good rig, try to go with a i3 or better or AMD AM3

Yea, the Crosshair III is a very good mobo, but remember that is for AMD processors. Other options are the MSI 790FX-GD70 or ASUS M4A79 Deluxe.

None, the 965 is the top of the AMD, can't defeat the i7 and sometimes lose with the i5, but can defeat all series of C2Q except the C2Q Extreame.
