    Suggestions for a mobo....

    I need to decide on a mobo, but I have just alittle experience with them. I need a new one so i can overclock a q6600 g0 when i get one along with a xfx 8800 gts oc (580/900). Any suggestions?

    Btw I have friends who can teach me to overclock, but they seems too bias on opinion(fan boys over the 680i). So I need a second opinion or more.

    Thanks guys

    680i is a real good chipset. Im running on a stiker extreme myself.

          If it's overclocking you want, then that's DFIs specialty: http://us.dfi.com.tw/Product/xx_prod...D=5277&SITE=US

            the one I'm looking at is the Asus P5N32-E SLI Plus. And I'm looking at upgrading to almost the exact same specs as you. (just getting an evga card instead of xfx!)

            This board is based on the 650i chipset though (I don't know if I'll need a 680i running a q6600, 8800gts, and 7600GT). The 680i 'stage up' I might consider is the Asus P5N32-E Sli. (without the Plus.)

              I might be getting a Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L myself.

                The 680i boards are still full of bugs, u only need one if you're planning to sli which really isn't worth the extra money for the small performance boost u will get

                I got the Asus P5K Deluxe, its an all round good very stable card with some very nice features

                  I been seeing alot of bad reviews on newegg on almost all asus p35 boards. Majority says bios is fragile and unstable.

                    IMHO there is only 1 motherboard that is stable, reliable, and their tech support is awesome.

                    Get a ASUS Mothrboard. In the 15 years of of using their motherboards I have only had 2 bad motherboards! They are awsome!!!

                      Best boards for over clocking conroes are the ones with p35 chip sets.

                      Any of the upper end gigabyte, asus or abit boards would do you well.

                        I got a Striker Extreme aswell.
                        No experience in building a pc whatsoever, but even a clumsy idiot like me managed to do it in the end.
                        Never even seen someone overclock their system but i wanted to try out myself.
                        And i think my sytem is running fairly well!A E6600 DualCore from 2,4 to 3,4 on aircooling!
                        I was quite amazed how easy it was.

                          Before the thread gets yanked, anyone else thinks we should have a off topic sub forum and hardware sub forums here?

                            That's the one I'm aiming for too. With Gigabyte's 8800-640 GTS, it'll rock.
