Ok so I'm tired of this trashy nvidia LGA 775 motherboard. I have one of the older ones and its stability leaves little to be desired. It doesn't even reliably support 4 GB of ram. I am looking at the nvidia 750i motherboard. Don't really want to sink the kind of money required for something like a 780i. Is this a decent motherboard or do you think I should go with an intel chipset? I would like to have SLI capabilities, but in all honesty I can't even say I will ever use SLI on this current build, which has last me fairly well since 2006. I have an E6600, which is good enough for me right now and going with the new Core i7s is just too pricey for me to consider even though I wish there were a motherboard as nice as x58 for LGA 775.

Any p35, p45, X35, x45 Asus, Gigabyte, or DFI. All will be rock solid, and won't give you the headaches that have had.

I'm sorry, I didn't realize I posted this in the wrong forum. Feel free to move if anyone cares.

Asus P45 has been my only 100% stable motherboard in the past 2 years :o

I hate my nvidia motherboard, so I'm looking at buying another nvidia motherboard.


Do yourself a favor and buy something with an Intel chipset.

When it comes to mainboards, Confucius say:

Then Intel it is. Someone had told me that the 750 wasn't bad but I really would rather stability. It doesn't take a lot to convince me to not go with nvidia after how horrible this motherboard was.

Does anyone suggest a specific brand/model? I'm looking for the best price possible.

Pretty much sums up my feelings as well. Used Gigabyte in last two builds and has worked great. OC's just fine for me too.
