Well ATM the Intel X48/P45 are probably the best OCers. The X48 supports crossfire @ x16 on both PCI-E slots, thus it is better for crossfire. The only reason that I can see for going nVidia is for SLI, but crossfire scales better most of the time anyway. The general concensus is P45 for OCing quads & single GFX. X48 for OCing duals & Crossfire.

I wanted to decide on the motherboard before anything else. I plan on overclocking. This will be used for gaming and running several programs like photoshop and paintshop.

 

this is what i was originally thinking...
