Hi people, I need your knowledge to decide between the asus P5B-E or gigabyte
GA-965p DS3 cause my budget is arround 160$ and those 2 seem to be the best option, besides that Im planning for the moment use my presscot 630 and 1 Gb pc 4200 (2x512) Ram so I need some advice. In the near future I'll buy a conroe 6300 but not now. Can I do all this?

Thanks

both boards are ddr2... do you plan to overclock with that rig? there is atleast one board out ther that takes both ddr1 and 2, but only 2 dimms of each, and not at the same time... i'd recomend the S3 instead of the ds3, and buy some ddr2
but thats my opinion... infact im so fond of that opinion thats what im doing

my memory is ddr2 533 MHZ pc 4200 so there's no problem with that I guess, my doubt is about the performance of my 630. And yes I'll OC if I can

im a long time asus guy, but, i've been reading good things about gigabyte lately, and im choosing to give them a try for a change. its really up to you man. i think they are about the same. with 533 ram im thinking you'll likely hit a wall before you max either board.

Well thanks for your opinion, let see if someone else says something more about it but I think Asus has better reviews anyway I'll wait for more help. Thanks dude

I'll second the asus, the reviews as you have mentioned(Anandtech and toms specifically) both give it stronger ratings
