1. P or G? Which one will OC higher/more stable?<br />
<br />
2. Does it really have only one IDE Slot? What are my options here as far as storage? I like to have two Optical Drives at least. SATA "just works" on this board hopefully?<br />
<br />
3. Any other boards around the same cost with similar or better features that may be better for a E6300?

Get the P965. G965 means it has onboard graphics, which will not OC as well, as the northbridge has to do stuff with the O/B graphics, even if it's disabled, I think.<br />
<br />
Yes it does have one IDE port, but you can use up to two devices with a double cable.<br />
<br />
To my knowledge, there aren't many boards with the same features in the same price range.

</div>Yes, 2x DVDRW/CDRW = All the IDE Slots used. This Mobo will boot from SATA?

It should do. It should serve you well <img src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Wink" class="inlineimg" /> Just watch out for the northbridge, it gets very hot. Either invest in an A/M cooler for it or just set a silent fan around that area.

i hear 965P o/cs higher, but i got the G just because it costs the same essentially and if something happens to my 7800gt (unlikely) i can at least get into windows... i dont have any backup video cards even though i used to.

Well the current mobo I have, I had to update the BIOS for it to boot from SATA.<br />
<br />
Also, I see a lot more of the E6300 than the E6400. Which one is the better overclocker?

The 6300 is cheaper, the only difference between the 6300 and 6400 is the multi, so they will both overclock similarly (each individual CPU is still different of course). Niether one is a bad choice, just depends on your budget. If you have the money go for the 6400, if not, you shouldn't skimp on other componants to afford the 6400.

I'd say go with the S3 instead of the DS3, unless you need the board to last 5 years+<br><br>
Not everybody will agree, but the real choice in the Core 2 Duos are E6300 vs E6600. I'd say from a price performance point of view, the E6300 is better value than the E6400, you'll get more MHz for your cash.<br><br>
I might be Biased, of course <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">
