975X vs P965 - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Yea I brought it cause its cheaper and I dont intend to use duel graphics cards. But the linux thing is a problem for me. There is testing kernel patches to surport the P965.
So if you can figure out how to get a install disk with the lastest kernel with this patch. And as long as you dont have a realtek 10/100/1000 on board network card which apparently is also a problem that works with a eairler kernel and not with the newer one but I cant confirm the network card problem.

The 975X chipset doesn't have as good overclocking as the 965P or so I've heard. I heard they hit a wall at 400 FSB while the 965P's have known to go to 450 and beyond. Of course that doesn't matter if your multiplier is high enough, but I think for the allendales at least, the 965P is better. Unles of course, you want dual graphics. Then the equation changes.
