Exclamation Brand New System

Hello again everyone,

I am selling my current computer and building a new one.

I was looking around and I think the CPU I want is the Q6600 GO.
I have been looking around and I am not sure about what motherboard to pick and of course I cannot pick much of anything else with out picking that.
I do know that I want an Nvidia 8800 ultra or GTX. So a board supporting SLI would be nice. I have looked somewhat at the ASUS Striker Extreme motherboard, but I do not know because intel has there new chipset out that supports DDR3.

I need to know some good motherboards to look at, also I have until next month so if there are some new boards due out then I could look at them as well. So if you know of any Please let me know.

Thanks everyone !!

btw get that q6600 from CLUBIT, but rumors are they are out of stock.. because they are guaranteed G0, get a 680i SLi if you want SLi or a Striker Extreme but people will be recommend you don't

Hello!

Righty, for SLI, you might want the NF680i chipset, the Striker Extreme being one example. The consensus is that the Striker has some great features, but on some builds has been known to be a pain. The eVGA NF680 is another good choice.
Bear in mind that SLI only gives a limited increase (perhaps 40%) for a large price.
If you aren't so bothered, then the P35 chipset comes highly recommended (and cheaper), good options being the Asus P5K deluxe Wifi-AP or the Gigabyte P35-DS3R.

If you want DDR3, the equiivalent versions are the P5K3 and the P35C-DS3R, the latter supports both DDR2 and DDR3. Nonetheless, I wouldn't bother just yet: its very expensive, not really any better than DDR2 and will be a long while before it takes over. I would just ignore its existence.

Okay I have decided that SLI is not a need and I have decided that DDR3 is most def. Too expensive.
So... the best board could possibly be the ASUS P5K Deluxe, or is there another great overclocking board out there?

See my sig So far ive been stable up to 3.6ghz. Not orthos stable, but stable enough to play every game that im running, not to mention running at 1920x1200 with all settings at high. The ultra is somewhat overkill when you can just overclock a gtx to the same level and save 100 bucks.
