New MB for Q6600

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I plan on getting the new G0 Q6600 and am looking for a new board. I've seen a few and am wondering what some recommendations are. I'm not looking to have the most expensive board but I want something decent that can overclock and will last.

Two I have looked at so far have been these.

Let me know what you all think or is there a better board I should go with?

Thanks,
Jeff

Ok so of those two the second one which is the GIGABYTE GA-P35C-DS3R.

Are there other specific boards I should look at. I'm looking at keeping it under $200 for the board.

New question though, which is better, the P35 or the 680i?

If you decide on the Gigabyte GA-P35C-DS3R, then you might as well get the Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3R, since it's $30 cheaper. Unless of course you actually wanted both the DDR2 and DDR3 slots on one board. The second board just has DDR2.
