Getting the very best S775 mainboard
As some of you know I'm having a lot of problems with my striker extreme mainboard. That's why I want to exchange it with something else.
I was thinking about the DFI P35-T2R. But I don't want to make a big mistake. Should I hold out for a different board on P35 chipset, or should I look into the X38 - X48 - P45 for the future (or perhaps even the nvidia nforce 780 - although I don't feel like it -)?
I want to run an E6600 with 2 GB OCZ Urban Elite RAM and my old trusty 8800 GTS 640 MB.

DQ6 is great, but P35 DQ6 is being replaced with X38 DQ6.
However, there is little reason for a X38, but Gigabyte seems to be pulling out all the stops for X48. I'd either suggest P35 or the X48, and simply skipping X38. Info here http://www.anandtech.com/weblog/showpost.aspx?i=315

So you advise me to cope with my current system for the time being?
I would also like to know the following:
I'm running a RAID-0 (stripe) on my main hard disks. Will this new board along with its different (intel) RAID controller be able to read the data created on the nforce 680 RAID controller?

I have nothing against X38, but P35 version is cheaper if Xfire is not needed, and X48 should slot into the same price point as X38 but with some new tangible improvements and BIOS options for enthusists. Will be the best/last chipset pre-Nehalem when everything changes.
