the 965 chipset is techincally for the Core 2 Duos. I'd go the P5W DH Deluxe though. Best motherboard money can buy IMO.

if youve got a p5w dont budge...going to a 965 chiset wont lose you much(no quad core support mostly) but the other board loses you a pci express slot, 1 ide slot, 1 sata slot and there are still major ram compatibility issues on the 965 chipset...Only DDR2-800 memory supporting JEDEC approved 1.8V operation with timings of 5-5-5 or 6-6-6 is supported on Intel Desktop Boards based on Intel 965 Express Chipsets

Most people could probably afford it. The question becomes if you think it's worth it. I'm currently saving for a wedding ring costing 2x as much as my entire rig. It's all about making the choice of what you want and then finding a way to get it.

Back on subject. I too was thinking of what the difference could be.

Incorrect, you get quad core support on a P965 chipset. The only real thing you do loose going from 975x to P965 is the second PCI-E Slot runs 4x instead of 8x. But you gain much better OCing performance on P965 chipsets.

Well, I've never seen a post with so so much incorrect information myself. And where does that info comes from btw?

I wonder how many P5B Deluxe owners had to buy DDR2 4200 in order to boot their P5B Deluxe, because I didn't have a single issue booting my computer with my G.Skill DDR2 800 which is rated with 4-4-4-12 timings and 2.1v.

Also from day 1 running my G.Skill, I set them at 4-4-4-8, 2.30v in the BIOS and they booted at DDR2 1000mhz.

I forgot, I've used 3 sets of RAM in my P5B-DLX, Corsair 800 and 675 and finally G.Skill, in all 3 cases, zero issues.

hanwinting, keep your P5W-DH, performance wise there's no difference: http://www.legionhardware.com/document.php?id=580
