Which Gigabyte P45 would be best for me?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey OCN,

Been thinking that I deserve a new computer . This is going to be my first build and I would like suggestions and comments on which Gigabyte P45 I should get.

Something I do want to try is RAID and the onboard "autoRaid" looks interesting. I will be hooking up a 45nm CPU and will be doing light OCing. The main thing I need is something that will last about 5-10 years . I might be doing xfire with the new ATI cards, but thats something to think of in the future.

GA-EP45-DS3R
GA-EP45-DS4
GA-EP45-DS4P

Out of those three, which do you think would be the best for me? What is the difference between the DS4 and the DS4P?

Any other suggestions besides these three is cool.

Feel free to question my needs and help me choose one.

Thanks
