Hey all,

I put together this build with a lil help but I am still not sure as to what MB I should get.

This is the one I am thinking of buying
GIGABYTE GA-P35-DS3L Rev. 2.0 LGA775 Intel P35 ATX Intel Motherboard Retail ($90)

But I people keep telling me to get Abit or Asus and if I want to spend some more get DFI or Foxconn...and I am pretty sure I want to get sli compatibility also...can anyone recommend a good motherboard to buy? Right now I'm at about $1030 and I would def spend more (not over $200 for the board) for a worthwhile MB...

any advice? Thanks alot :)

i think quad core is unnecessary at this point, you could get a duo 2.8 ghz amd for half that price at newegg.com and there are some decent amd boards out there, I personally love ASUS.

if you want the computer to last more than 10 months than you probably want a quad core. who doesnt want to join the quad core club too?

make sure the motherboard comes with plenty of SATA cables, as both your drives are OEM so they wont come with cables\manuals\drivers\etc
