Newegg.com - ABIT IP35-E LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail

that is just like the p35-ds3l with better ascetics and overclocks a bit better.. plus its cheaper than the p35-ds3l (thats what happens when we over recommend something.. [used to be like 90$])

Yeah it definitely is considerably cheaper, are there any major drawbacks to that one compared to the one I have listed currently?

Also, can anyone recommend me a good wireless keyboard that is standard size in the $20-50 range?

EDIT: What's better, an 8600 GT or 7900GS?

no.... theres no drawbacks... its the same thing as the p35-ds3l but its made by Abit...

does it have to be a Wireless Keyboard? why not just get a cheap keyboard...

I thought about that, may just go for a cheap one right now and decide if I want a wireless, just my setup makes it easier for a wireless keyboard and wired mouse.

Only thing I'm unsure of then before I buy is 8600GT or 7900GS?

well, if you wanna overclock a lot... both are great... but 7900gs does better most of the time... at stock... but i do know that the 8600gt can perform with an x1950pro and 7950gt if you overclock it hard enough... hmm.. tough call... go with whats cheaper..

Read up on it a little and checked out a few websites.

Seems that the 7900GS has the best overall performance. The X1950 PRO also seems good, but supposedly some games have ATI driver issues, and I think I remember reading about that also for a couple games I've looked at playing. Pretty certain I'm going to go with the 7900GS.

Edit: Ruled out the 8600GT because the 7900GS performs just as well if not better. I'm not going to play any DX10 games anyways.
