P35 or 650i? Help!

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
I'm currently comparing these two motherboards:

P5N-E SLI 650i

IP35-E

But all I really want to do right now is compare the P35 and the 650i. I need pros and cons for both.

I also need to know the ways that the P35 is better than the 650i, and also the ways that the 650i is better than the P35. I'm more interested in facts than opinions, but I'm not saying "don't post your opinions!", as reviews are always helpful. But I like data a lot to help me see the value!

So, please help me. I have this opportunity to buy the ASUS mobo for $85 shipped over the weekend from an OCN member, and I want to know if I should do it when there could be a better mobo for about that same price, such as that IP35-E (but I don't know if it's better or not).

IP35-E is a solid board. One of my friends just got it, and I have the little higher model (IP35-Pro). Definitely recommend it.

The IP35 if you are not going to SLI or Xfire. I have the IP35Pro, best motherboard I've ever had. Most stable overclocker, and ZERO problems with BIOS, layout, stability, etc.

I'd go with the IP35, great board and chipset.

Besides SLI, the 650i is nothing that the P35 can't do better.
post #7 of 28
If you don't plan on going SLI or using RAID 0, go for the abit IP35-E. I've heard a lot of good reviews about this board. The board is only $59.99 after mail in rebate! Even if this board is cheap, you get what you paid for. If you want extra USB ports, use SLI, and RAID 0, then go for the 650i.

Hi CheeseLasagna,

I have both boards, or should I say chipsets. A ASUS P5N-E SLI Deluxe (2) and Gigabyte P35 DS3L (2)...

My humble opinion. Get the P35 chipset. It's a little more future proof and in most cases will handle the newer 45n Intel processors with 1333fsb... I have a Quad Q6600 (B3), and E8400 running on my Gigabyte P35's and have had no issues at all.

My P5N-E Deluxe has a Q6600 (B3 stepping), main rig in sig, and E6600 Conroe on the other. No issues with them either, but it is older tech...

I hope this helped, :-)

I love my IP35-E. It was like 100 when I bought it, can't believe it's so cheap now.
