Hello, three motherboard choices after previous one *Asus P5N-T Deluxe* pins broke in cpu placement, blue my cpu and they could only replace the cpu as motherboard was void.

I'm no big motherboard expert - but im a serious gamer. The top range XFX one would be good because it means I could upgrade the processor up to 1600 (im assuming that if my motherboards speed is 1333mhz, thats as far as i can go processor bus speed) - and it also allows super fast RAM. so its futureproof. The other XFX one is futureproof to some extent, except the bus speed is only 1333.
Only thing is are XFX stable, as they are a OC company? I need to have a motherboard with Award bios, as my previous board (when it worked) had AMI bios, which wouldn't detect my Western Digital HD, but was detected in my friends computer (Award bios)

Kind Regards,
