If you plan on SLIing, the P5N32 SLI SE Deluxe, if not, the P5W DH Deluxe.

the P5W DH Delux uses 975X chipset does that mean ATI cards work better on it if so what would be best card to get:
512mb geforce 7900GS or 256MB RADEON X1950 PRO

My son and I just built his pc.

We used the P5W DH Deluxe mobo and we put in the following video card.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...2E16814121001R


This thing screams, plus the mobo is a crossfire mobo, so you can add another ATI card later

My son is playing Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter right now, and its looks fantastic and runs smooth as butter.

The game was free by the way with the purchase of the Core 2 Duo E6600
