Aight, cool. I know based on the reviews, the mobo says buy it (none under 3 stars), but, how about this one?

I dont know much about the p35, others do, but not me.

But I do know, that newegg reviews is bull. Listen to what the people here say. The newegg people are really dumb, they dont know what they are talking about.

please don't flame other members advice.....P35 will last just about as long for half the price....
SLI isn't really worth it unless you play on a high resolution, one good card is usually more than enough

haha. No I just started in this game too late to really care about the p35. I have a crappy 650i, and I am going to upgrade, but not to a p35... so I didnt really ever look it all up. I dont know the motherboard names. I only know good 680s, 780s and such. I also know a lot about graphics...

and yeah the post count contributes to your title.. so it isnt really a good gauge

exactly, and if you dont know anything about overclocking, then just go with a maximus. It can auto overclock your CPU, so you dont need to to manually configure anything. Also what i would do with the graphics card is just buy a 8800gts 512mb through evga and step up to a 9800 if the 9800 isnt available when you build your comp.
