For matx you'll want g31 but the p31 will be an overall better since the intergratied graphics arent in the way.

alright thaqnkx.

btw...im looking for a stock cooler fan for cheap...dont care if its used.

reason cos i can get the e2180 oem with the DS3L for 159 due to some discount(they dont have the retail in stock)
so if i can find a spare hsf for intel, ill just get the deal.
