Look at everyone who bought an 8800GTX. Did they really need it? This place is wack. Benchmarks don't matter but when it comes to video cards benchmarks matter. Asus is a bad company. Sorry you ordered a regular P5K of course its gonna suck it has no features. Sorry you had a bad experience with ASUS while thousands of costumers have no problems.

This place is ridiculous

"I'm on a budget and really want to get a q6600 so i've gotten a p35-ds3l to bring the price down"
Deadpixel: No, there is a very large performance increase in getting the p5k, definatly get it over the cheap p35 chipset

couldn't find the thread so i had to re-enact it
