In a bit of a pickle

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I currently have a msi p6ngm2-l motherboard I got a q9550 runing at default clock speeds. I have a thermaltake frio cooling system which keeps it at 38-45 degree Celsius. I thought about overclocking but my motherboard doesnt let me increase my voltage more than 1.1 volts. I am thinking about buying a new motherboard. Only thing is I am not future proofing myself because it is a socket 775. I am not ready to get a core i7 because I only got my q9550 a year ago. so I am looking at these motherboards what do you guys think I should do?

Asus was recertified now out of stock. I'm not really knowledgeable.
Gigabyte had an excellent reputation for over clocking 775. P43/P45 chips though.
Gigabyte has 10/100/1000 LAN, DVI, 889 sound chip.
Cons, no ACHI support. No IDE support.
MSI is most versitle of three, best reviews. 10/100 LAN Dsub $56 shipped.
The GA P45T ES3G is available, P45 chip, ICH10, FULL ATX board 87.55 shipped. Ouch. $21.55 more. No onboard video.
