KK i'm buying it today and i'd like you guys to help me find a price friendly motherboard that supports the q9550 and at least 8gb, not a big overclocker so no worries their.

EDIT: What would be stopping me from buying something like Newegg.com - ECS P43T-A2 LGA 775 Intel P43 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards how can i tell if it supports the 45nm q9550

You can get a P45 for cheap so i don't see any reason not to get one.

Newegg.com - BIOSTAR TForce TP45HP LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

This is the board I have. It was $130. Its solid and dependable. It has built in power and reset switches and debug leds, which have come in handy more than once when an OC went bad. It does support the Q9550 and it has crossfire support.

Depends on what you're getting it for. Gaming or browsing. I would def. choose the intel over amd just for intel having a better rep. with gaming performance.

skater there was like a 7 page long discussion about AMD vs Intel. Don't open old wounds lol.

There is no way you can be serious to say AMD is good only for browsing. It performs well in games too, just so happens that the Yorkfields are like unleashed pit bulls.

Saying amd is only for browsing is a stretch. But unless you are upgrading an amd system or you are apok there is almost no reason to go amd.

Even though intel is better than AMD does not make AMD a bad processor... Understood? good... Intel just performs better.. And If someone feels they want an upgrade right NOW amd is actually a good choice due to the fact they can buy an inexpensive am2+ mb and ddr2 room, and NOT have to worry about having to rebuy the mb/ram... Which in intels case you will HAVE to if you plan on running i7, We all know nahalem is going to be better than denab, but for those whom don't like to spend mad cash on computers, amd is a good way to go, plain and simple.

Phenom's are cheaper than C2Q's, and are using a socket that's more future proof.

AMD is marketed to the average people amongst us. While Intel is for the deranged lunatics. It only makes sense that the fan boys take after their favorite companies.

I never said they were bad. I simply said right now unless you are upgrading an AM2 based system there isn't much of a reason to go amd. Unless of course you are a fanboy who wouldn't buy Intel anyway.

None of you can call me a fanboy for the simple fact that ,(with the exception of apok) I have probably built more AMD systems then you have built systems period. I am speaking for the facts not some blind faith in a company I believe is perfect. I really don't care what you think of me or any other Intel user but dont go recommending sup par stuff to new users.

That is a statement only a fanboy could make.

I hear a lot of talk about future proof this, future proof that. You know what, there is a fair chance that Deneb wont out run Yorkfield. if that proves to be true then s775 will be great for budget builders. And then you wont have any ammo.
