Which LGA775 motherboard to get?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I'm kinda on a budget, but i can probably spend ~$150.

Im looking for used motherboards, and i came across the following:

P5N-E SLI for ~$110
P5B (Normal one) for ~$80
DFI Inifnity for ~$145
P5B Deluxe for ~$150

Prices may be higher than you've found, but this is because i live in Canada ;/

Any other suggestions? Which one should i get?

Thanks.

If you do not need to go SLi, the the DFI Dark 965 or 965-S will be the best buy, they are a far nicer OOB experience over the Asus ....

p5b dlx... nForce chipsets just offer SLi cabability.. something you DON'T NEED at all unless youre running on a 22" + monitor and some ULTRA high settings.

I'd also consider a Gigabyte DS3 rev. 3.3.

I was going to get DFI infinity, but i heard that it doesn't work with all PSU's.

I'm still using a 450w Fortron, and its working great with my e6300@2.6ghz and a 7900GTX.

I also heard that DS3's have a LOT of issue....s

Abit Quad GT?

Edit: It'll fall in your budget after the $40 rebate.
