What do you indend on doing with your computer? Do you indend on running SLI or crossfire? Do you intend on overclocking? Need a little more information to better assist you.

I'm thinking of getting a EVGA 512-P3-N860-TR GeForce 9600 GT 512MB . I intend on overclocking possibly to 3.6.

I do some gaming but it is mostly for audio editing, video editing and graphics. Of course while the computer is working on these jobs I'm downloading, burning discs and word processing.

I have a DFI board in mind, but what would you consider your overclocking experience on a scale of 1-10, 10 being the hardest. While the motherboard I'm thinking of is one of the best on the market, the BIOS is complicated and is not recommended for people new to overclocking. That being said, out of the three you choose, I'd take the ASUS P5Q Deluxe LGA 775 Intel P45 for it's overclockability. That being said, if you want to upgrade to crossfire down the road, I would not recommend thing board.
