Which motherboard is the best FOR me?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello all, today i need help deciding between several motherboards. All of them seem nice to fit my needs. I am moving my rig out of my NZXT Rogue soon where my rig is crammed into this motherboard (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128085) My Evga 8800GT is crammed in there, with my soundcard hardly having any space to breathe, same with my wireless card.

I am looking for a nice pci express slot positioned away from the ram, my hot gpu, or possibly avoiding the south bridge where it gets hot. I have an asus xonar dx soundcard.

Motherboards to choose from:
BIOSTAR TForce TP43D2A7 LGA 775 Intel P43 ATX Intel Motherboard
ASUS P5QL PRO LGA 775 Intel P43 ATX Intel Motherboard
ASUS P5B LGA 775 Intel P965 Express ATX Intel Motherboard
ASUS P5Q SE PLUS LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard

They all seem good although some have the 24pin positioned near the cpu where it might be hard to fit a xigmatek and psu cables through. Also if you can suggest any other great mobos under 100 dollars or suggest any thing wrong with the suggested (lots of doa, bios upgrade issues, etc) then please suggest those as well. I also prefer dual channel (i have 4gigs atm) and i use a Q6600. Thank you very much for your help :] Sorry for making this post very long.

P5Q SE will probably be the best choice
