I am looking at:

MSI 975X Platinum V.2 and

GIGABYTE GA-965P-DQ6

Which do you think is better. To give you an idea of what I will be using.

E6300, ddr2 800 ram(2 gigs). I want to overclock at least a little bit. I was hoping to go SLI one day, but I found it hard to find a decent SLI board under 200. If you have any other suggestions other than the two above, please send them my way.

Well right now I have an ati x700 pro, this is going to get replaced as soon as one of the 8800's drop below $300.

as for the E6300, I was hoping to atleast jump from 1.83 to 2.00 ghz, however, if there is more possible I would like to push it further. I have a Zalman 9700.

Pick any P965 you want, the cheaper the better as they all will OC as far as you want. The buy 667CL4 memory instead of 800, its also goign to fulfill your needs beaitifully.
