I've been thinking about puulling the trigger on an Intel X58DSO for a bit; on ebay you can find a bulk seller selling them for like $100 a pop(and a couple others for $120ish some new*OEM/Bulk Variants* some refurbished some used)... and I mean it's straight from intel and an enthusiast chipset how bad can it be?

That is the one I am looking at. Not sure it supportes the X5650 though.

That's the only risk really,  it might it might not, but according to intel ark it supports the W3690
