Which p35 motherboard for Q6600 gaming rig. - Page 3

post #21 of 31
Boostgod,

If you don't need RAID or Firewire, then just grab the Gigabyte P35-DS3L or the Abit IP-35E and use the extra money that you save to grab either an HD3870, 9600GT, 8800GS, or 8800GT.

redundant array of independent disks. Just a way of running many disk drives together.

Firewire is an alternative to USB. It's pretty much the same thing.

If you don't know what RAID or Firewire are, you don't need them. So just get the Gigabyte P35-DS3L or the Abit IP-35E.

And then use the money you save to grab at least the 9600GT. The 8600 series = fail.

Loved my P5K-Deluxe Wifi, got my Q6600 G0 to 3.825 at 1.425vcore 24/7. I haven't bought new cooling for this board and G0 yet but I have easily went to 3.00GHz at 1.300Vcore and stock cooling.

Honestly, either card will suit you just fine....they are within a few fps of each other. Just depends on if you use anti-aliasing or not....here is the first page of benchmarks from tomshardware on the 9600 GT http://www.tomshardware.com/2008/02/..._gt/page8.html
