*sigh*

I like helping, but when people don't make more of an effort it really gets on my nerves. How do you expect us to give you advice when you ask a question like that? We need A LOT more info:

- What are the rest of the parts?
- Do you overclock?
- Which country are you in?
- What's you're budget?
- What do you need the system for?

P5Q-E would be the best choice I think. Although it's quite pricey.

A P45 board would be best for you, I'd get one with Crossfire support so that you can add another HD 4870 when you want to upgrade. Like this Gigabyte board.
