Default MB for a Computer Build for the wifey

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813188017 (I'm installing a Q6600)

I'm looking at this 1? think it's a decent mobo to get? For this computer for my wife will never be overclocked nor sli'd.

If you have any other suggestions, please let me know. I do not really care about the price.

If it's never going to be used in an SLI setup then you'd be better off with a P35.

That board is good. I almost got that exact same board but I went with Gigabyte at the last minute.

Like worshipme said, that's not a very good board to pick if you aren't using SLI. You can get a cheap P35 board for the same price, and it's much better. Here's a pretty good one for the price:

Yeah, it'll be much better than the 650i for a quad core.
