true enough. It is really a hard choice. but I think they will all clock decently. On this list there really are no bad choices

Yeah I just said screw it and wanted to try something new, so I got a good deal on some OCZ 8500s and an e6750. Very happy with both. Got my OCZ @ 1128mhz 5,5,4,14 @ 2.0v...my ballistix would need 2.15 for that

And got my e6750 to 3.6ghz on only 1.32v !

Ya... i think i'm going with the one NoCLue suggested... i plan on a WC kit after this mobo upgrade anyways... and there are enough good cards out now and i don't honestly plan on the 4870x2 or the gt200...

But it doesnt have Xfire right?

It has crossfire, but the second slot will run at 4x, which is obviously a bit of a bottleneck.

I dont think so. it looks to have only one PCI-e slot. (I am doing this from mem) but you could always look under DFI boards and p35 chipset. There may be some others, that look just as cool, and have that extra slot. Even if it costs a lil more

EDIT- I guess so. but there still might be a board with an 8x second slot

No, that's how the P35 chipset works...they are all 16x + 4x

If you don't care about PCI-E 2.0 or crossfire, then I'd say the P35 is a better choice. They hit higher FSBs on average and also run a bit cooler.

**** yes then... and saves a bit of moo- la

Thanks guys, hopefully this will be my LAST decision -_- lol i have been so wishy washy due to paranoia.


EDIT: NVM!

what about this one Newegg.com - DFI LP LT P35 T2R LGA 775 Intel P35 Intel Motherboard - Retail

I like the look of the LT better and i hear it is an improvement over the other one.
