P45 or P35 ADVICE NEEDED PLZ!!!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Okay so the news is that any time soon the so called daddy's of the X48, P45 boards will be arriving on the market.

I have a slight issue. ive been wanting to build a LLL (long life lasting) Rig. i have one issue. should i go for the P35 Chip set or the P45. I know that in the long run it will benifit me more, but right now most of the boards will support DDR3 RAM. Not to mention i wont be running SLi... ever!

DDR3 doesnt have that much on DDR2 not to also mention is has a hefty price tag with it. But that will be the future adn i dont want to look back and say "i should have waited".

Does anyone know when DFI will be making thier P45 Boards i have seen the MSI, Gigabyte and ASUS ones but they all look ugly and compared to DFI they arnt as solid (this is my personal opinion and i aint changing it).

I am willing to take on the ASUS P5Q as the P5K done me well, but a DFI DK P45 board would just do the job. People i am begging for some help here!!!

Please note anything you know on the P45 Boards, any info on DFI & P45 and info on how much it might cost. INFORMATION NEEDED!!!

P35 seems to be the overclocking champ right now if your not going SLI.

I can get 600+FSB with the P35

P45 is rev (1600MHz fsb and PCI-E 2.0 etc) of P35 and won't be cheap when it is out. Get P45 if you have budget. Othewise, a nice P35 board should be fine. DDR3 ram will become mainstream ram but not now. Extra $300 may just gain few percentages of performance. By the time, BIOS becomes more mature and components is able to take full advantage of DDR3 ram etc, the price will be lower.

Im in the same boat man..at first i was thinking wait for p45..but then again p35 is a well and proven solid board and very capable at overclocking and the first wave of p45 boards maybe buggy and stuff, im thinking of just going with the P35 DK.
