Default Looking for cheap Stable board.

I currently have a half fried Evga 790i Mobo, It has tri sli, but i realized i will never need more than my single 9800gx2. I am currently running ddr3 at 1333mhz stock, and a q9450.

I am on a small budget and am trying to get this rig running again, here is my first choice for something that looks like it would support my hardware.

NCIX.com - Buy Intel BOXDP45SG Skyburg ATX LGA775 P45 DDR3 2PCI-E16 2PCI-E1 3PCI SATA2 eSATA 1394A Motherboard - BOXDP45SG In Canada.

Anyone think i would notice a performance difference? Or perhaps you know of a better budget gaming board.


Thanks.

for the same price this is a muhc better board.
NCIX.com - Buy Biostar Tpower I45 ATX LGA775 P45 DDR2OC 2PCI-E 2PCI SATA2 RAID Sound GBLAN CrossFireX Motherboard - TPower I45 In Canada.

If you wanna save cash this is a pretty good deal with rebates
NCIX.com - Buy Gigabyte EP45-UD3R ATX LGA775 P45 DDR2 1366+ 1PCI-E SATA2 RAID HD Sound GLAN 1394A Motherboard - GA-EP45-UD3R In Canada.
this and the p5q are decent boards for a bit cheaper.

This one will support your DDR3 1333 memory just fine, and it's more than 50 bucks cheaper.

Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-EP45T-UD3P LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

go with that board. i have it and i am extremely happy with it. the only thing is i wish it did sli. but it is a beast of an overclocker and is pretty stable.

Didn't register the part about where you mentioned ddr3, in this case you could go with the EP45T series, which i have heard overclock very well, go wit the ud3L hikari linked. Don't go wit the 780i, its best to stay away from the nvidia chipsets unless you want to use sli.
