for gaming i would pass on that between the fact that has a good 4 slots ddr2 but only has 2 ddr3 slots. in the future which was what this board was made for you would need 2gb sticks to reach what will become the new gaming standard of 4gb

Quote:
2 x PCI-E x16 (blue @ x16 mode, black @ x4 or x1 mode)
that means when you run SLi only 1 of the slots will get full 16x. the other one will only get 4x or a pittful 1x. not good for gaming.

for your needs lhuser it should be nice. i know you dont game so sli dosent matter and your not into hardcore rendereding so 8gb ram is good.

thank your parents for buying you that kind of PC.

Personally, I wouldn't get it. DDR3 isn't really developed enough yet, and DDR2 provides awesome speeds still.

true but when it is cheaper and better you can buy it then. that motherboard has BOTH ddr2 and ddr3 support

I wouldn't want a motherboard with both. Save the space for more PCI slots, etc and just use one or the other. I'm pretty sure it can't use both at once anyway...

The P5K range doesn't support SLi only Crossfire so no need to worry about that, I did consider that board for my build but ended up getting the P5K vanilla for now so that when DDR3 becomes cheaper I'll just swap it out for a P5K3 or whatever is the latest and greatest chipset.

hmmm....you need to be able to buy this right? I would say the P5K3 deluxe or the ABIT IP-35 pro. I would choose the ABIt over the ASUS anyday. There isn't much to choose from as of right now. But...the best motherboard that I've seen to date is the DFI P35-T2R

that is photoshoped. NO WAY could you reach 4.4ghz even on a C2D. even with phase change cooling just not enough stablity. besides the voltage is way too low for the core to be that high.

The voltage is low, but judging by the multiplier being at 7 the CPU throttled itself back while idle...mine does the same thing.

And people have gotten Core 2 Duos well over 5 GHz...hell AnandTech got an E6600 over 4 GHz on air:

LOL! CPU-Z doesn't display voltage correctly. Plus...its the P35 chipset. And...the guy that clocked this is....the head BIOS programmer @ DFI. He probably knows more about BIOSes than anybody else in the world. And it is on phase. Keep in mind that people of his stature receive 10 core 2 duos in a box, test each one...and choose the best out of all of them. Basically, its a cherry picked E6600. And the screen shot is just to prove bus speeds, not clock speed.

because maybe Oskar lives in Taiwan? And that his windows is in chinese. And that only the programs that support chinese have chinese in them. And the checksum matches for super pi.

Just wanted to throw this in to add to the fun. It's possible to get an E6600 to 5.5GHz. (Not mine, of course, by any means. It's gotta be some sorta record.)

no no. not at all. Its just saying that C2D chips are capable of these speeds. BTW, kaz-n's 5.5ghz was done on LN2.
