I have some money now, but not enough to completely switch to core 2 duo.
Should I sell my motherboard, buy a new one, and keep my 805?
Or should I sell both and get a e6300 and a cheapy non ocable mobo?

The motherboards I was thinkin of were:

Just save your money for awhile and get yourself a respectable mobo for that core 2 so that you can overclock it. I hate waiting but sometimes it is really worth it.

i really think its not smart to save up...
because my motherboard will depreciate faster than core 2 duo's drop in price

what i need to know is: What will be more future proof? The P965 or 975X?

Either one is, both support Kentsfield but performance wise there's no difference.

I personally like the P5B Deluxe better than the P5W-DH Deluxe but I wouldn't mind having one either. As far as ABIT, I think it's better to stick with the ASUS. And either a P5B Dlx or P5W-DH Dlx.

I've always liked ASUS, so thats a no brainer. Other than that, does anyone know how tht wifi works on the P5B Dlx?

The Wi-Fi is just for wireless connection but I don't have a wireless connection in my house, so it is a waste but then again, I didn't pay $270 for my board. But if you do have a Wireless connection, it'll be worth it.

That $209.99 deal is killer, I wish I had pay that much, I paid $229.99 though.

If your processor will fit in the P5B deluxe then I would sell the current mobo and get the P5B then later when you have more money get a good C2D processor.
