Thread Starter 
Hello friends,

I am going to buy new computer with following spec:

Intel Q6600 processor
nVidia 8800 GT

i want to buy only intel motherboard but not sure which one to buy for Q6600.
may be
DP35DP
or
DQ35JO or DQ35MP

upon checking intel site, i like to go for DP35DP, and i don't have any plan for overclocking, but i might use XP pro (CD) and later Win Vista Ultimate (DVD)

please help me and let me know if there is any problem using DP35DP with abount config and OS.


i will appreciate if u can also suggest me for RAM and cooling system.

now my new config (after getting ur reply) is:

Processor Q6600
Mobo DP35DP
nVidia 8800 GT

RAM (4GB) ????
GPU cooler ????
CPU Cooler ????
???? can i use upcoming windows in Q6600+DP35DP ????

thnx again and waiting for reply... and more hints/help/comments...

q6600 g0 is the latest stepping of the processor.

Check the mobo manufacturer's site for processor compatibility.

If your'e not overclocking, then the stock coolers should be fine for your CPU and GPU.

And of course you will be able to use the upcoming windows with your proc and gpu.
