Right now the Epox 8k3a(+) or 8k5a2(+) are probably the best overclocking boards available. Not only are these boards KT333,(which has the 1/5 divider that helps tremendously) but they also have vcore adjustments up to 2.2v and vdimm to 3.2v, which no other KT333 board has. This will allow you to push the cpu further without a volt mod. Nforce 2 will be arriving soon but if you don't want to wait go with Epox.

yes if you'll wait go for nforce2, if you don't wanna go epox 8k3a, and also I'd reconsider a 8500 over the 9000, the 8500le is cheaper and faster.
