One last question... Will I have to reinstall my OS if I switch from the P35 to the x38 chipset?

It looks like the only thing better about the GA-P35-DS4 than the GA-P35-DS3R is the heat sync: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128083

I decided to just get the GA-EP35-DS4 since I seem to upgrade about every 6 months anyways, and my ASUS P5K Deluxe cost me like $250 when I bought it, so I will save a little this time around Thanks for the help guys...
