The P35 has CrossFire capabilities, but then you need a dual PCI-E x16 mobo.

yeah i saw that when looking at a few of them. i don't really need the crossfire (as i have an 8800GT) but i was wondering if the P35 overclocks better then the P965

With 965 you get a strap change after FSB 400 and that mean that your bandwidth decrease and latency increase, not good.

P35 does not have that issue, you can go above 500 without strap change if your cpu can make it.

With P35 you can OC you memory better and get better performance then with 965.

And X38 and X48 are even better when it comes to OC memory and equal to P35 to OC cpu.

ah that's some good info, thanks mate. i would get the X48 but i don't think there are any MoBo's in my price range with that chipset

Hi,

Toms Hardware has some reviews and comparisons that might interest you:

http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/...d,1629-16.html

They used the ASUS P5B Deluxe board here because of it's over-clocking abilities. Remember that the 965 chipset is getting long in tooth, and probably will not be available much longer. The P35 chipset is the next generation up from the 965 series.

I have several of each of these boards. They have all been rock stable in my folding farm. The upgrades to the P35 are relatively easy, and they do have a higher FSB capability...

Either way, it's up to you and your budget...

My two cents. Take care, :-)
