[H]ard|OCP reviews a new 975X board from ASUS.  The P5B-E is much like the Deluxe version that is out already, especially when it comes to overclocking.  With 450MHz FSB within reach, this motherboard offers a lot for a small price.  Even without a second PCI-E 16x slot, there are a lot of extras on this board, so give it a look.  There were some oddities during the testing stage, keep an eye on this thread in their forums
