Re: Gigabyte mobo chipset differences?
P35 is newest, and will support 45nm CPU's too. 965 chipset, (however is as performing as p35) will lack future upgrade. as I had just finished reading the X38 chipset test and p35 was neck-neck with X38.
if you want performance Motherboard on P35, get the P35-DQ6 series Motherboard. else, whatever you wrote, is good to go.
Intel Core2Quad 2.66Ghz 12MB L2-Cache
