P6T SE without a doubt. Running it's big brother (P6T Deluxe) in my rig at the moment and love it.

Also, if you're in the UK, make sure you buy from a proper ASUS dealer...they guarantee a 5 day turnaround on RMA's

may as well go for the SE board as it's cheaper and performance across the X58 boards is pretty close

[edit] i do like my GB UD5 tho
