Are you thinking of overclocking? Will you have an nvidia SLI setup? Are you dead set on these boards? Can you wait till November?

Be more specific...

yes I am looking into overclocking. yes I will have a sli setup. no I am not dead set on these boards. yes I can wate for november, I don't want to but it may be worth it because my birtday is in november and the new cards are coming out.

Since you're saying you can wait until November, then here's what I would do:

I would skip any of the 590 chipset boards coming out later this month from ASUS and BIOSTAR. They are based on the nVidia Crush C19 chipset, which suck for overclocking. They can barely muster 330-350FSB overclocks.

Come November you should start seeing boards with the nVidia C55 chipset which many have speculated will be an overclockers dream for Conroe owners.

I would personally wait to see what DFI has up its sleeve. They will be releasing a C55 chipset board in November. That will be my next board. Until then, I will stick with my ASUS P5N32-SLI SE Deluxe which gets me a max 340FSB overclock. Not much, but it will have to do for now...

Good luck with your next motherboard.

msi or dfi are the only companies ill buy a mobo from anymore, intel boards are ok, but lack features, ive had nothing but trouble from gigabyte, asus, and abit latly.
