Which Motherboard for this RIG?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone,

I need suggestions for a motherboard for my components listed below. Im lookin at the $150 - $200 range, $250 if totally necessary. Its my last part to build this bad boy. I need a suggestion badly, overclocking and stability is pretty important. ( i know the ram sucks, im gonna get new stuff later ).

Monitor: Dell 2408wfp
CASE : Antec Nine Hundred
CPU : Q9450
RAM : OCZ Platiunum 2x2Gig ( 4 Gigs total )
Video : Nvidia 9800GX2
HDD : Western Digital Raptor 150gb
MOBO ?!?!

Whats your thoughts educated overclockers?!?!

780i if you want SLI P45 when they're mainstream. Also, change your sig.

If you aren't going the SLI route anytime soon. The DFI LP DK P35 should suit you well or the Abit IP35 Pro, but I would be looking at some of those newer P45 boards.

P45 or x48 for crossfire...i hear the 750i isn't bad for OCing and SLI if you want...

also, like redsunx said, change your sig...i've got the same amount of rep and i'm not begging...

Go with the DFI P35 DK unless you're serious about going SLI, I never really saw the point to SLI
