Need Help picking new MOBO.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
HI so i need help picking a new mobo im a big fan of ASUS but ill think about going to a new brand.
so my first thing is i want to get a Q6600
2nd i dont want DDR3 (to expensive)
At least 2 PCI-E 2.0 slots
good amount of sata, and the regular ide slot for my dvd drive's
got to be a very good OC'er
FAST
good quality
any were from $100-220 max

oh one more question on sites like newegg you now how they have the cpus that can are compatible with the board when it says in the list Pentium can they support a P4 because, i no i sounds weird but i want to use the P4 for a while till i get the Q6600. basically i want to get the board first then the cpu.

There is only one mobo I am finding that supports 775 and P4 on newegg and it doesnt even support 800 mhz memory.

So maybe you should just wait until you get your q6600 so you can get This

EVGA 750i if you wanna go SLI but you will need to get your Q6600 1st.
Unless your P4 is 775skt.

Not uptodate on good Xfire boards but DFI seem good

My P4 is 775 (whats skt?)
well my video card now is an XFX 8800Ultra so i might just get another one of em there $199 at tigerdirect. so to answer ur question yes to SLI
also what does the "Pentium" mean in the cpu supported area? (Pentium 4, Pentium duel core?)

Skt. is short for Socket... Like socket 775, 1366 etc. Its the connector the CPU has to the motherboard,
If you are going SLI get the EVGA 750i FTW.

And pentium are/is a family of processors made by intel before the Core2 and i7 series.
