680i chipset is the way to go!

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813188013

IMO that is the best motherboard out to date.

I def. have to agree with Thelis. Especially if you are going to be over clocking. and since you made that thread about how to over clock, I'm guess you are :0
So get that.

First hand experaince says go with what Thelis gave. Have one myself, and seen a few go out in computers at work. Not a problem with any of them.

P35 is a later release chipset so I would tend that way instead of the older 680i

My $0.02

We all have different opinions, everyone else is wrong im right best thing to do is choose a couple of the ones mentioned and google for a comparison, ive seen a few places where they test different chipsets under loads of different situations, thats why i chose the 680i, clear winner on most tests.
