Default P5B, P5W, P5K... Im confused?

Ill be building a new PC withint a month and heres what I've decided on so far.

E6600 C2D
EVGA 8800GTS 640mb
(Still deciding on ram)
2x Seagate Barricuda 7200.10 320gb RAID0

Im looking at the Asus P5 Series boards and I quite dont know what the diff are. Anyone have a comparrison site?

Also Ive had my eye on the ds3 from Gigabyte.

The P5W DH Deluxe looks like a nice board.

my budget is about $250 for the mobo

Alright, my only concern with the ds3 was i've read that you need a special back plate or something for all gigabyte boards when using a Tuniq Tower 120

Don't get a DS3...instead get a DS3R if you wanted a DS3. The P5K is a really good board though too

The rebate ends July5th and unless you can get lightspeed ups shipping, the rebate is basically gone.

Have you read the Terms and Conditions, rebates don't work like that. You can buy something on the last date before the rebate expires and still qualify. Just as long as you mail it within 20 days after the purchase. That rebate is good if you buy it today and mail it before August 5.

I'm loving my p5k motherboard. It's one of the best motherboards I've ever had the fortune of working with.
