Definitely not an nForce 4 for an Intel CPU, regardless of SLI.

For a Presler 930 the obvious choice is a MoBo with a 945P, 955X or 975X chipset but other than that it's not eve an option.

If you're on a budget then a refurb P5WD2-Premium will be a good choice if not any ABIT, ASUS or GIGABYTE 955X chipset based MoBos, or maybe a 945P will do.

MSI is not nearly as good as any of the 3 motherboards mentinoned above, so avoid getting an MSI.

Well i would either have to go with this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813127213

or the Asus you first posted P5WD2-Premium .... the only thing really i like about this one is it has a heat pipe, and most of the people say the BIOS are nice.... Which would you get out of the two?

I'd go with the Asus P5WD2-E Premium.

It's probably the best board out for Intel CPUs at the moment.
