Those Gigabyte EP45 motherboards are most definitely better boards than P5Q Pro..thumb.gif
I have been looking for one of those but couldn't find any for a decent price..

Dunno about that MSI P45 Platinum but I think that it's also a nice P45 motherboard and it definitely has better BIOS options than P5Q Pro..

CHEERS..

Yeah but those mobos were much more expensive too..

That Gigabyte EP45 DQ6 and that MSI P45 Platinum were 2x more expensive than P5Q Pro and they are really matched with P5Q Premium and Deluxe models..

Still for the price P5Q Pro was the best bang for the buck upon initial release in Jun 2008..

I have bought my P5Q Pro for 125 Euros brand new in September 2008..wink.gif

Say, just a question here... but I read that when going SLI the Q9550 will be the bottleneck no matter if I can OC it to 3.8GHz. Does that go for 2x ATI HD4870 1GB's as well, or just for 5870 and up?

So far I have seen my average FPS go up from 20 (no OC, 2x4870) to 60 (OC@3.6GHz and just 1x4870).

I'm deciding on what to do next... buy other RAM so I can get to 3.8-3.9GHz, or just get a better mobo+cpu and be done with it. :s

No Q9550 is more than enough for two HD4870 in CrossFire..

I'm running overclocked GTX480 which is much faster than CF HD4870 and no bootleneck at all..

There would only be a bottleneck with Q9550 @ 3.8 - 4GHz with GTX480/570/580 SLI or HD 6970 CF setup..

CHEERS..

Yes, go for the DS4.

And very true about SLI/Crossfire. I ran 2x GTX 260 in SLI using my Q9650@4GHz, using the SLI hack. CPU were nowhere near being a bottleneck. A GTX 260 are about the same speed as a HD4870. Also, 2x GTX 260 SLI are a tad slower than a HD 5870, give or take a little. A HD5870 are considerable slower VS GTX 480 and GTX 570.

So, when a GTX 480/570 are not bottlenecked by a Q9xxx/12MB L2 at closer to 4GHz you can probably summarize the rest yourself...

However, I've noticed in Oblivion, which have parts that are very CPU dependant, that when using the Sandy, FPS stays much higher in these parts. I will investigate closer. But I've always had trouble with lower FPS in parts of that game. Sandy is helping here. One must remember this is a badly coded game.
