ya sort of like the AsRock mobos which used both AGP and PCI-e, it was a good idea... but it was buggy.....

That's definitively not cheap for me. I thought that if I can find a decent 600W PSU under 40$, I hoped a more silent one wouldn't cost more than twice, but I guess I was wrong XD.

Yes, probably it's not worth the risk, so I think I'll go for the GA-P35C-DQ6, which is almost identical. Is this a good mobo anyways, or do you think there are better choices? (I'm not interested in accessory stuff or overclocking capabilities, I'm only talking about performance and stability)

You won't get the power supply, but a more expensive motherboard? I think you meant the P35-DQ6. Anyway I think the P35-DS3R is the one to go for.

Honestly, I didn't check the price, I thought it was the right one, but it's also possible I got confused with all those numeric codes!
If the DS3R is the "standard" P35 mobo, then it's the one I'm looking for.

It's not the standard P35 motherboard. It's just going to be a very popular one, because of it's price and performance, making it a very good bang for your buck motherboard.
