Motherboard decision

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I'm in the process of upgrading my PC, but can't decide on which of the following motherboards to get:

ASUS P5K Deluxe
or
ASUS P5Q Pro

If anything, I might get the P5Q Deluxe, but I want to find out which of those is better.

ASUS P5Q Pro
Edit: If you are interested in DFI mobos(really good OC), I can recommend you in the similiar price range.

Well I'm going to combine it with the Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 CPU and at the moment I'm not planning on overclocking. If you have a different, better motherboard to recommend for no more than $190 USD, please do so.

I was looking for information on Google and came across the P5Q-E. From what I read it's better than the P5Q Pro, correct? Problem is, I can't seem to find it anywhere for sale. Let me know if you have a place that sells it.

I think I'm going to stick with ASUS. I can't seem to find the P5Q-E for sale anywhere. Has any one found it?

I probably won't be overclocking though. I found the P5Q Pro, but I'm trying to find the P5Q-E.

Wasn't really looking for anything, just asking which motherboard was better (the ones I listed in my first post). Then I decided to look around for an ASUS P5Q-E. You need to read posts more often.
