    I'd personally stick with Asus; I've always had good luck with them.

    Alright, so seeming the overwhelming sensus is towards the PQ. How's its onboard audio since I don't plan on getting a sound card for a little bit just yet.

    overclocking or sli ?
    P5Q Pro P45 (chipset P45) for stability and performance
    MSI P7N SLI Platinum 'chipset 750i) for SLI

    onboard (P5Q-pro) sound is the best I've heard from an integrated, ever. That being said, good luck running the ram at those speeds, as a lot of P45 boards have issues with high speed ram

    I don't really buy into the SLI thing too much. My friends have had nothing but issues with it sense they've done it and the performance gains seem to be barely worth the effort in my opinion though it has crossed my mind on occasion. Will the mobo have that big of an issue with the ram?
