whats the best mobo to OC a e6600 for under 150$ i was looking at this but i dont have to have sli i was thinking just incase
There's one a little better than the P5K, the P5KC: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131188
If I were you, I'd worry about SLI "if" an only when I get a minimum of a 30" LCD display, to truly enjoy the full meaning of SLI. But if you're a benchmark junkie? Go for the 650i.
P5KC is a better overclocking board and one single card is more than enough, such as a GTS 640MB or the GTX.
Thing is that people "only" buy these SLI boards because of the SLI option but in the long run? I can count with the palm of my hands the number of people that are "actually" running SLI.
Some will say......get a high end card now and wait for the 2nd in two years.........time goes by and that never happens. Who wants to run SLI with two old cards? Nobody, that's why you won't even see people running SLI on 7800s, yet there's plenty of SLI boards to go around.
SLI is pointless IMO.
P35, a reliable, stable and capable of a high overclocking chipset.
