OK then, some P35s have 2. I just assumed, since mine only had 1, that that was the standard. Sorry about the mistake.

You can get better for the same price, or almost as good for cheaper.

I would go with:
E4500: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115031
-or-
E6550: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115030

The E6300 is a bit old. So, if you can spare the extra $10, do it. If not, save some extra green and get the 4500. Just IMHO, My $.02, etc.

Actually, all but one P35 board that I know of with 2 PCI-E slots has one that is a full x16 and the other is only x4. Only the ASUS Blitz P35 chipset board runs both lanes at x8 using it's own crosslink technolgy.

CrossLinx Technology
Delivering better game play without the bottleneck of x4 solutions
Crosslinx is an unique technology utilizing a dedicated controller to optimize PCIe allocation with dual x8 lanes. Crosslinx eliminates the graphics data bottleneck found in other x16, x4 solutions. The result is unmatched graphics performance for smoother gameplay and maximum benchmark potential.
Here is an example of the standard dual video card slot P35 board:

ASUS P5K LGA 775 Intel P35

1 x PCI Express x16
1 x PCI Express x4

I would not recommend the E6550 because with it's x7 multi, you would need to run a 458 FSB just to get a 3.2GHz OC.

The E4500 is a good choice and can OC to 3.2GHz with only a 290 FSB! With the x11 multi, it makes for a good chip to overclock.

Good eye about the Mult, I hadn't seen that. I just thought the extra Cache and higher FSB would be nice. The E6300 is still a decent chip, they just charge an awful lot for a CPU that launched with the platform, that's all.

It won't overclock well... Oh, and the "sound card" is as bad as any onboard audio.

Im with the other guys here, the DS3L would be about as good a motherboard as you could hope for. Just something to think about, the DS3L has 879 reviews on newegg, 76% of which are 5 stars. That DFI has 46 reviews, of which only 41% are 5 stars. I would go with the statistically better board if I were you. But im not, so its all up to what you want..
