rev 1.0 - max Vcore is 1.6v
rev.2.0 - max Vcore is 1.85v

If u can wait, get rev 2.0, if u cant, and u dont need Vcore above 1.6v, get rev 1.0

It depends... If u want to overclock your cpu and you have a decent cooling - then yes, theres a big chance you'll need Vcore higher than 1.6.

there is a bios for more volts on the rev 1.x board on this forum for upto 1.85v i think. There is also an official bios (the one before the current one) which has a feature where the voltage settings in the bios are wrong and lead to higher v's check the forum for posts regarding this feature.

As for needing voltages the 'C' core p4 as has been said by many folk doesnt respond to increased voltages that much.
