Default Nvidia vs Intel based mobos

What are the advantages of the Nvidia boards (I'm looking at the i700s) and the Intel boards (looking at the P45s).

Edit: most likely ordering a board today.

sometimes they only support crossfire or SLI, so depending on your preference of video card, one might be considered better then the other.

The p45's are better overclockers than any nvidia chipset motherboard.

How much are you willing to spend on the board?

What ever it takes for a good quality Mboard. The last two that I've had were MSI and Asrock.

These are the 3 I'm looking at

Newegg.com - XFX MB-N780-ISH9 LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 780i SLI Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

Newegg.com - ASUS P5Q Pro LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

Newegg.com - ASUS P5E LGA 775 Intel X38 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

I'm leaning towards the x38 chipset. I like what I've read about them.

If you plan on overclocking the Biostar I45 would eb a excellent option. It holds the world record for the highest fsb and is capable of running a 600+mhz fsb on air cooling.

Newegg.com - BIOSTAR TPower I45 LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

The Gigabyte Ep45- UD3P is also a very good overclocker.

Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3P LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

Both of those boards are good quality. The Asus x38 you posted is also nice.

I don't care to OC. I did a bit with the MSI and Asrock I had, but I'm fairly uninterested. Believe me. If I wanted to OC I'd just buy a biostar and not even post lol. But I mean hey, if the board's good...the ability to OC is just an added bonus.
