what are your other specs...? I didn't vote because even though I say **** those two boards (btw, it's D865GLC, you have an extra 5 in there) I also wouldn't get an nVidia chipset, I'd go with Intel, the only reason to get an nVidia chipset is if you plan on SLIing two nVidia video cards, if not, there are much better and cheaper options available...

I don't think motherboards really matter for gaming do they? Just get one that accepts all your components well and is very consistent/stable. Now if you were going to OC then it would matter a little more.

Agreed

Without knowing the rest of the proposed spec it is just guesswork, P4P800??? skt 478 isn't it?? so a retro build or what?

Don't buy an nVidia chipset, you're wasting your money.

Give us your budget and other specs, and we'll suggest a board.

If your still using Socket 478,I Dont think the 790i will make it onto a Socket 478 Motherboard,i dont even think there still making Socket 478 motherboards.

I did a check for a friend of mine lately, there are only 4 options for socket 478 boards on the 'egg...
