Why a P[xx] / X[xx] and not a 965?
Though I'm not disagreeing... The P/X are rated much better...

How is this Gigabyte mobo?

Is this the only X38/X48 that utilized DDR2?

This DFI also looked decent.

You could definitely go P965... In fact some boards OC 45nm dualies quite nicely(600FSB+). The Asus P5B deluxe and Commando if I recall correctly, perhaps even the DFI Infinity P965-S.

There are plenty of X38s that utilize DDR2, however to my knowledge only the 2 X48s that I listed utilize it as well... The last one you linked is the exact same one I linked previously, and I would definitely recommend it over the Blood Iron.

Well the 965 chipset is old hat really even though it's still around people have moved on to the newer chipset the OCability of the new chipset is insane. when i 1st bought my quad i got an Asus P5 board and i read that they're crap on quad OC but good w/ Dual. So after about 3 days of looking for a board i bought the DK p35. i wanted the x38 but i didn't have crossfire cards

Asus P5E

Great board, nice and cheap too. There is of course the option for the WS (workstation) version, or the higher-end Maximus Formula, but they are all in the same ballpark.

There is a whole thread on this board in the "Intel Motherboard" section.

Yes indeed, the P5B Deluxe will go to about 600FSB. But on the other hand, it is pretty old. I'm considering a P5E myself.

So the DFI DK P35 (retail)
or
ASUS P5E (open box)

Really, I think I'm going to choose the DFI DK P35 "Dark" and a E8400/Q9300

E8400 Wolfdale or Q9300 Yorkfield for HL2\\COD4 gaming?

Edit:
Ahh godd, within a few hours the Wolfdale went out of stock... I'd like to order it before 4/14, but O guess if I must, Monday + shipping won't be that bad...

You will see slight performance increases (I'm talking two or three frames) from getting a wolfdale to sticking with either quad. But later, when games are optimized, or when you want to do some major multitasking, you'll regret your decision. I suggest you go with a quad core, but that is my 2c.

I really hope so... Newegg says 1 year limited, but I used to think it was 3... I'd love to send back my ASUS board, and buy a new C2D setup while it's on the way, and then sell my ASUS board...

I am looking at the box for my Crosshair right now and it says 3 years for the warranty right on it. I would defiently get it RMA'd.
