Arrow What Mobo!!!

Alright I need a good motherboard for my pc that I am going to build, I'm not sure on what to get, are there any sugestions?

It needs to support socket T(LGA775) for the E6600 Conroe that I'm going to get. Support ddr800 and raid 5 as well. I also have found this but I am not sure if you can buy it as of now.

Asus P5N32-SLI Premium/WiFi-AP

But anyways I need to get it tonight

Go for a mobo with the 975 chipset.

The 570 ain't all it's cracked up to be.

I've heard the P965 is suppose to OC like crazy, same with the 975X. Stick with intel chipsets, nvidia chipsets worked amazin on AMDs, but NF4 for intel had major problems but idk about the new NF5 chipset. Also, if multi-gpu is something ur interested in (who would be though) and you want a newer intel chipset, MSI announced that their P965 supports crossfire. Although i think the speed is 16X/4X instead of 8X/8X.

Take a look at the DFI Infinity 975X, MSI 975X, the new MSI P965 (dont kno if its out yet), i think the Gigabyte DS3? OCed good too.

I looked at the Asus P5W DH Deluxe, It seems like a good board and it has good reviews.

I read somewhere that people where getting sli to work on the 975x chipsets? and intel and nvidia were talking about supporting sli on intel's chipsets. don't know how creditable that information is though.

the 590 is out already?
