I am planning to upgrade my Gateway fx6800 (http://www.gateway.com/systems/product/529668210.php) to these specs:

Case: Antec Nine Hundred
CPU: Core i7-920 (I may overclock to ~3.2 GHz, otherwise stock clocks)
PSU: OCZ ModXStream Pro 600 Watt PSU (http://www.amazon.com/OCZ-OCZ600MXSP-ModXStream-Power-Supply/dp/B001EYV690)
HDD: 7,200 rpm hdd that came with my system
Graphics Card: Probably ATI Radeon HD5850, but I'm waiting to see what nVidia will bring out and what changes in prices there are (if any). I WILL NOT BE USING CROSSFIRE/SLI.

I am considering the EVGA X58 or the ASUS P6T motherboard. Out of these 4, could you tell me which would be best (and why so that I can choose my own in the future)?

EVGA X58- $269.99

EVGA X58- $299.99

ASUS P6T Deluxe V2- MSRP not given, $299.99 on Amazon

ASUS P6TD Deluxe- MSRP not given, $299.99 on Amazon

BTW, I can't find any differences between the two EVGA motherboards except for price, so if anyone could tell me the difference, I'd appreciate that.
