    The PB5 deluxe is a great board (buying one myself) but nothing in electronics is future proof

    I would stick with that board just because its Asus, but u can have a look at gigabyte DQ6 similar price and quadcore ready.

    it doesnt do SLI or crossfire, but for any forseeable single pci-e cards, it should be ok.
