I have a 9850 black and need a good overclocking board and cooler for under $210 for both. What would be the best 790gx board to get? Also would like it to Support PhenomII for later upgrade. Thanks

Of course the Asus Deluxe is the most expensive board as it is a 790FX board with the SB750 south bridge. It is superior to its 790GX sibling, unless of course you actually wanted to use the onboard video of the 790GX chipset. As for the cooler this is a good choice for the money
