If you're in a hurry, I'd still wait 2-3 weeks after the first boards get released before picking one. Damn nice plan you have there by the way.

I'd probably just get a couple 256MB PC133 modules from Crucial, an Upgradeware Slot-T for $20, and a Celeron 1100 Tualatin for $35, then overclock that to 1466MHz at 1.65v core on your old board.
