What Core 2 Duo motherboard is right for me? - Page 2

post #11 of 141
Be advised about the 680I sli boards in general. It's brand spanking new, and the BIOS bugs are being worked out. No matter who the manufacturer is

There's an article on this in the OVerclock news.

I realize that, but when they do get fixed (to the owner's liking), I will update each and every board. Actually, some board's have released different BIOS' that have helped their certain board. (the EVGA has released a bundle of updates, and the Asus boards have only had a few updates since the initial BIOS)

what about 650i boards? Asus has one and got 500+ FSBs
post #16 of 141
Currently priming a DFI Infinity at 426FSB. Looks like it's really not that bad after all. That's only a bit shy of what I see the P5W-deluxe boards priming at and I don't even know if this is the limit to the board yet.

I don't fully understand your chart so i'll ask this. If i'm going to get the 2.4ghz 4mb cache conroe (i forget its name) and i will have 2 gbs of ddr2-800 RAM with 4-4-4-12 timings, EPP and all that good stuff. My GPU will be an eVGA 8800GTX. What mobo should I get? I am not sure how much I will overclock but I will certainly try to take it to my boards/cpu's limit. I would hope to keep the price of my mobo under 150.

Thanks,
Billy
Working Great!

P5B Deluxe is just for you!

The P5B Deluxe is a great value (only $180), however, don't let its price fool you. It is probably the highest quality board. ASUS tried and true. You will get a great overclock out of it, especially if you are a beginner!
