Not sure what to go with..

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
For my upcoming build, I am not sure what motherboard to go with. It is going to be a Q6600 build, so I would like to hear some suggestions on what I should go with. I have been looking at the following two also. I just plan on running one 8800GTX, so I'm not so sure if I will need SLI. Any feedback would be appreciated.

GIGABYTE GA-P35-DS3R LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail

ASUS P5N32-E SLI LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 680i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail

Hmm, well, how about I put it this way then. Cost is no object, which mobo should I get for good Q6600 overclocking. I will probably only be using a 8800GTX, so if it doesn't support SLI, it doesn't really matter. I will probably use 4 gigs of either Gskill HZ or Crucial with it.
