I'm not very educated when it comes to DDR3 memory soo maybe some of our other members on the Tech-Forums can help ya out if you do decide to go for this board
Keep in mind that the GIGABYTE board has both DDR2 and DDR3 Memory slots but it only has 2 DDR3 slots where as the ASUS board has 4 but the price is so high up there soooo only consider the ASUS if you have BUTTLOADS of cash or is willing to spend that kind of money to get the most future proof item out on the market as of now
DawnOfDoom, the P5K3 isn't much of a board right now. Due to DDR3 not being the mainstream of RAM, check out the prices for it. It's a rip. I bet in about a year or 2, the DDR3 RAM will drop in prices and that's when people will be getting the DDR3 boards that also has the X38 chipset. b1gapl linked you a site describing the chipset, so you'll understand why the P5K3 isn't such a great board right now.
For the thread starter : I would go for the Intel Core 2 Duo - E6850.
