P5B VS P5B-Deluxe - Page 2

I think I will only get one video card. When DX10 comes out I will get a new card, and then eventually maybe a second one. I think I'd just upgrade one however.

Also, I can't order and try it then return it if I'm not satisfied. It's not like Newegg where you can RMA. I think that once you leave the store OR once it's opened (forget which) then you're responsible for it. Even if you left quickly and didn't double-check and they made a mistake on the merchandise
All I will have is the warranty from the manufacturer.

What kind of store is that?

Here in the U.S., you go to ANY store and you have upto 15 days to return hardware, unless the store says otherwise in "writing". But most places are 15 to 30 days, online retailers as well.

Well, IMO if you have ANY 2nd thoughts, get the Deluxe edition, that's for sure a MoBo that is fool-proof for overclocking. I'm very happy with my P5B Deluxe and I think I couldn't have done better. Is it worth the extra $$$, I think so as I don't really rely in the "luck" factor of whether or not the lower-end board will clock high or not.

The GIGABYTE DS3 is another great choice but for that one, the RAM is the part in which you have to pay close attention as there's a bug in the BIOS preventing RAM that needs more than 1.9v, the system won't boot. You'll need the latest BIOS to be bug free and in order to bypass that, you'll need at least a stick of DDR2 400 or DDR2 533 which are known to start at 1.8v.

I'd rather stick with Asus. Tried and true in my books. Never had any problems with my older boards from Asus

I might just go with the deluxe. It's simpler and not that huge of a difference anyways..

It also provides for a mice upgrade path. I have only had my P5B Deluxe for a few days but already it "seems" just as good if not better than my P5W Deluxe...
