    DFI Infinity 975X is &#163;96 inc. VAT on OcUK this week.
    with the latest BIOS it's supposedly good for ~440fsb.
    Alternatively Scan have the abit AW9D & AW9D-MAX on special for ~&#163;120 & &#163;131 respectively.
    975s don't run as high an fsb as 965s but over 400fsb they tend to be quicker clock for clock as 965 switches to looser memory timings.

    i would recommend waiting a coupla weeks till the 680i mobos drop or try and find a 650i mobo as that is also very good. If not get a P5B-Deluxe

    The 680i mobos have some issues. NVidia reckon that it's a BIOS thang, but I'd rather wait for rev2s myself.

    I have been hanging on for 680i.... but considering going for Asus P5B Deluxe now.......

    Although there is now a 680i available at 'reasonable' money (&#163;187 Incl VAT) http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Produ...oductID=510710

    Edit... Problem is I need a Serial COM port for my GPS... Which is available on the 680i, but not I think on P5B... How best to achieve?

    id personally get the 680i but if you want to go P5B then do so and get a PCI card for teh right port you need

    Asus Commandowill fit the bill Not sure yet on release date but iit looks a good solid board based on a proven chipset. More info VR-Zone. May be my fallback if LANParty UT ICFX3200-T2R-G or Abit IN9 32X-MAX don't appear as scheduled or fail to impress at last minute.

    luck

    buy a Gigabyte - my DS4 has 1 (I needed COM port for programming a scanner).
    I'm buying a 975 chipset board for my E6600 though.
