A very good board but a word of warning im thinking that that board Will not be Conroe compatible as it needs a newer version of that chipset form what i hear..You may want to do you research.

the -WS is a workstation board, you don't want that

The P5WD2-E Premium is the current flashship Intel board. It is the best all around motherboard out.

The GA-975X is the competitor to the ASUS 975X board. I personally do not think that it has the same quality as the ASUS board, but I am sure it is a fine motherboard anyways.

The ASUS P5WD2-E is the cheapest of the 3, and the best. So just get that.

For those who think Conroe is incompatable with 975X, I believe this is false. Intel has demostrated the Conroe on a 975X, so clearly the issues are all BIOS related and NOT hardware problems.
