Default Which one of these MOBO should i get ?

Title is self explanatory. I would read reviews and all but i work 50 hours a week and don't have much time for it so ill' just trust the wisdom of my fellow anandtechites

Note that i plan to use it with a E8400

ASUS P5K ATX LGA775 P35 DDR2 2PCI-E16 3PCI 1PCI-E1 SATA2 Sound GBLAN 1394 Motherboard 130$


Gigabyte GA-EP35-DS3L ATX LGA775 P35 1333FSB 1PCI-E16 3PCI-E1 3PCI SATA2 Sound GBLAN Motherboard 100$


Gigabyte EP35-DS3R ATX LGA775 P35 1600OC FSB DDR2 1200OC 1PCI-E16 SATA RAID Sound GLAN Motherboard 140$

Also , i don't want to spend more than 140 $ for a MOBO so if you have a recommendation in that price range other than the ones i mentionned then feel free to enlighten me.

Thanks in advance

I went for the Gigabyte GA-EP35-DS3L for 92$ CAN. It's cheap , got good reviews , has some OC potential and i don't need all the extra of the EP35-DS3R so it was the logical choice. This is going to be my first Gigabyte board (always went with Asus in the past and never had any serious issues) so hopefully i won't have any bad experience but i am confident that everything will be OK .

I am pairing it with a pair 2x2GB of Mushkin 5-4-4-4-12 ram as i heard that they are working well together.
