Question Motherboard Help

I am going buying a new motherboard for my Intel c2d 6320. I have narrowed it down to about 4 mobos.
-Asus p5n-e (My favorite),
-Asus p5b-e
-Gigabyte ds3
-MSI p965
Which ones the best. Also which chipset, Intel 965 or NForce 650i SLi or 680i. I will be overclocking (though I have to replace my kingston value ram). Which is most suitable. SLi would be handy but no more (Probably not used).

My budget is approx. $110-130 and a site using paypal or google checkout would be best as I am using a foreign (Irish) card but delivering to US.

Default Re: Motherboard Help

I would suggest the new Gigabyte P35-DS3R:
Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-P35-DS3R LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail
It's an overclocking beast, and it's future proof for the new C2Ds.

OK, but isn't the 650i Sli a better chipset. You use it so you must have a good experience, And your overclock is massive! :-0 But thanks for the advice

Well the 650i chipset would be better for features, since it features SLI and other stuff. But if you want to really overclock, I would suggest the P35.

Also, P35 is compatible with Intel's forthcoming Penryn processors, making it more future proof than chipsets like P965.
