need a new mobo-- p35? 680i? - hmm- thoughts?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Wow-- time to get a new mobo and sooo confused on best way to go right now.. Was looking at the 680i-a1, but then the p35s show up...

I have a few questions you guys might know-- First off-- regarding the 680i, is there still reports of that board eating ram? Im looking to oc a bit and am worried about the ram killing reports.. You dont hear about that at all from the p35 board...

680i-a1
gigabyte p35-pq6
asus p35- p5k

what do you guys think?

I dont think i can wait till the p38's (or is it x38) comes out.... so what to get now... thoughts and reasons?

The P35 is faster supposedly but I have not seen the difference between a P35 vs a P965.

I'd say give it a while before you decide, look for reviews coming up soon.

If you can't wait, then the P35, it will support Peryn CPUs which is the 45nm.

If you will be working with a single GPU definately go with a 975X or P965. Only get 680i / 650i if you want dual graphics.

I highly suggest the Intel D975XBX2. Very good board.

if you dont plan on changing cpu soon id say p965 (on the other hand if you think youll be upgrading to the new 45nm cpus in the upcoming months go for the p35)

+ the p965s are realy gonna get cheap ..over here (france) all the p5b series have gone down by 15% since the p35 release..and they ll keep on getting cheaper as days/weeks pass....
