So NiteStick what about the Gigabyte 965p-S3 and 965p-DS3?

Whats good about them and different from the ASUS P5B?


Edit: I just say that 299.99 Monitor and accually that looks like a REALLY good monitor. 1000:1 Contrast Ratio, 5 ms, and an 500 cd/m2 brightness? thats amazing...only thing i see wrong is that its a off brand and from a different site.

It seems the p5b-deluxe is more reliable, but the ds3 is a good overclocker too and a good budget mobo if you want to save some money for something else.

So any other suggestions?

Edit: Ive been getting a feeling and i was thinking maybe i should downgrade to a GTS rather than a GTX and get that monitor! sac a little video power for a LOT of Screen size and quality!

You could go for a GTS. It's still a kick*** card. I heard the only CPU to take the GTX to it's full potential, is the X6800.
