Question Motherboards

Gigabyte GA-M55SLI-S4 (AM2)
ASUS M2N-E (AM2)
ASUS P5LD2 (CoreDuo)

Ok I'm pretty much wonder what you lot think I should get...

I was thinking M2N-E but it seems to have lots of problems or something
(Apprarently with ram modules ) not sure about the others though.

This is going to be a new build mainly for gaming.
I know what parts I will have to get from the mobo choice.

If you've got the money, go with Pentium. If not, the AM2 will do. I have a M2N32-SLI and it's an alright board. The only problem I had is it's hard to overclock with my RAM. If you end up getting an M2N board make sure you do reasearch on which RAm you can use. I use 2GB of Corsair XMS DDR2-800 and it works fine. I got it clocked to DDR2-900, so not too bad.

It seems that the M2N-E only works with a certian voltage... but I can't seem to find out what that is.
