Motherboard help

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Which motherboard would you guys choose for the following setup:

CPU Intel Core 2 Duo E6400
Memory 2Gb(2X1Gb) CorsairTwinX XMS2 Dominator, PC6400
Graphics MSI GeForce 7900GTO 512MB
Hard Drive Western Digital 250GB SATA 300
Optical Drive Samsung DVD±RW
Case Antec Nine Hundred
PSU OCZ 600 Watt GameXStream PSU

The comp will be used for gaming and will be overclocked, so a good overclocking mobo would be nice. Crossfire and SLI are not needed, so I quite like the sound of intel's P965 chipset.

I've been thinking of the GA-965P-DS3 because it's pretty cheap, has good features and can overclock.

Any other suggestions??

(Oh and if you see any parts in the above list you wouldn't buy or would change, please tell me!)

Cheers

The Asus P5B's (delux) are meant to be ace OC'ers for conroe.

Were bouts in the UK do you live? Your name sounds familiar.

Thanks for the replies.

The Asus P5B Deluxe does look like the most prominent choice at the moment, but I still heard that the gigabyte GA-965P-DS3 was a good overclocker.

Sorry CL3P20, but what's the A64W?? You've completely lost me.

Btw, I live in Buckinghamshire (if you've heard of it)

EDIT: 1 more question - will the memory (PC6400 CorsairTwinX XMS2 Dominator) and Optical Drive (Samsung SH-S182D - IDE) both be compatible with the P5B Deluxe??
