I'm on newegg, have an E6600, 2gb OCZ plat. rev2 DDR2800 in my cart. Im ready to order but am absolutely torn as to what motherboard to get.
I want to OC but not extreme and SLI is not an issue.
down to:
ASUS P5B Deluxe (i965)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16813131045
or
ASUS P5N-E SLI(i650)(will req. zalman chipset coolers)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?item=N82E16813131142

Thank for any help

I would say the P5B Deluxe would be your better choice.

my mother said get the P5B Deluxe ;)

intel chipsets are generally extremely stable and still feature rich. it will OC the amount you want and since you dont care about SLi, then its perfect :)

Thats what I am buying next, I am not doing SLI.

Defiantly the P5B Deluxe if your not going sli.

With the P5B Vanilla I am running 425fsb x 8 to get my E6400 @ 3.4Ghz stable. And the P5B Deluxe is a much better motherboard than mine. (Problem with this mobo is you can only set ram up to 2.1v. And that has limited my overclock). The deluxe has a lot more options too.
