another option is the  ASUS P5N7A-VM
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131348

which is fundamentally the same board, with slightly different options
available to it.

Both are good boards from the reviews I've seen. I've been looking at
them too for an upgrade to my main frontend.
