Finally got my pay..time to start!!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
ive been asking alot of question while waiting for my money to be deposited, roughly 2 months of researching for a new conroe rig, complete build... cant really upgrade an IBM netvista workstation...

anyways my question which i think i already know the answer to but i could be wrong... is im going with an E6600 and single vidcard..no RAID and going to eventually overclock...

ive been debating over the P5B Deluxe, and the P5W DH... everytime i decide on one i read somehting to steer me the otehr direction... at first i was going to for the P5b then i read its better suited for allendales but it sounded like it would fit my application.. single GPU, so then i went to the P5W... then today i read that its not a good as the P5b for OC'ing and im not toooo concerened with SLI....."yet" and that the P5b can reach higher FSB speeds... and the P5w sounds richer in features.. there is a minor price difference so i want to get it right from the start... so my question is what is better suited for my E6600 single gpu and no raid and why?

Conroe? Single GPU? No RAID? Go for the Gigabyte 965P-S3 and save yourself some of that cash.
