Your going to get a more expensive Mobo because it "looks" nice? Lol, I think that's a little childish. If I were you, I'd get the P35 $139.99 one. I hear it OC's great and doesn't have any problems. I will be getting this Mobo with my g0 SLACR Q6600 and 8800GTS G92...Can't wait

I also bought a case because it looks nice, so why shouldn't i buy a mobo if it looks better?

And the LT's always perform better then the DK's from what i know.

As long as it performs i have no problem putting out the few extra bucks for it, since i was originally going to spend more anyways.

I don't know, but The Mobo is like inside the case under the huge heatsink and gpu and ram and wires. I really don't see how a better looking motherboard would be a better choice than another one? Also performance wise, if he wants 3.6Ghz on his Q6600, the DK is fully capable. Obviously it's your money, but if I were you I'd invest it in something else and get the DK, cause that is what I'm doing. Good luck with whatever you choose.

I never said the LT will OC better than the DK, but I said the DK will be fine for 3.6ghz on the Q6600, that's all.

Yea basically.

So ya I'm going for this one
Newegg.com - DFI LP LT P35 T2R LGA 775 Intel P35 Intel Motherboard - Retail
at this point...
Looks good right? No unexpected support for no quad core overclocking? Any problems with Crucial Ballistix? No problem with a tuniq? No problem with an 8800 gt?

ANY UNEXPECTED THINGS AT ALL? -_- (**** 680i SE?)

DFI is probably one of the best when it comes to boards with loads of overclocking options.... get that

Yes, I do realize who you are and that I talked to you. I don't understand your point? Are you implying that I can't give you my opinion because I asked you for help on building a computer? Just trying to help you decide by giving you my opinion, not trying to teach you anything.
