I just install Windows 8 on the Asus P5W DH Deluxe. The system is triple booted now with Windows Vista, 7, and 8. Each OS is on a separate physical partition.
Makes it much easier installing drivers onto the upgraded OS. The Windows 8 Consumer Preview is very fast. Doesn't seem to have all the bugs and there are some changes from the developer's preview (did a dual boot system on an HP Laptop using the Developers Preview and Windows 7). Here are the system specs. I will update this thread as I continue to evaluate the software.
