I am more than looking forward to getting this. It will be a better board than the D875PBZLK as long as the new socket turns out to be dependable enough and there is no better board than the PBZ IMO. Prescotts are as cheap or cheaper than Northwoods and have the same performance, they also OC well from what I've read. In case you haven't heard, the 915/925 chipsets are PCIe, they have great onboard audio compared to no audio before, have NCQ, faster MCH/memory bus, 4 SATA and 3 Firewire ports, Matrix RAID, etc. so there is plenty of improvement.
