Yup. I will probably be buying a Intel (gag me with a frickin' tuba) system in the middle of September.

I'm probably will be going quad.

What would be a good motherboard to go with my quad CPU?

May I ask why your switching?

I'm going for more speed and more power. My intentions are to build another box, and keep the one I have now as my debian server.

Welcome to the Brotherhood...

Are you looking @ P35, or did you want the X38? For X38 I'm lookin at the Giga-Byte GA-X38T-DQ6, should be able to find some specs on it on the web. I currently run the GA-P35C-DS3R, it's a solid platform and has both DDR2 & DDR3 memory slots (4-DDR2, & 2-DDR3), so if the X38 mobo is a dog I may just stick with my P35 for awhile.

My personal experience with nVidia chipsets, ASUS mobo's has been a bad one, but that is just my experience. As always YMMV.

I have been more than happy with my ASUS P5K Deluxe wifi (p35) it is a 10x better board than my 680i was. only complaint is that early vista drivers were buggy, and I wish it were draft N wireless instead of G but its pretty good.

Its is an inevitable decision, the only pc I would build with AMD is a internet/email machine.

Join us DOC come to the dark side. Anyway i used to think the same way I'll never own an Intel rig yada yada . once i built the rig in my sig I say I'll never own an AMD rig so it's all relative you'll be appreciating the power and speed of these C2D chips and all is good. I went from the FX 60 @ 3.0 to 3.6 on the e6600 and I found out what a CPU bottleneck was. I vote for the board I have in my sig but with so many new boards coming the x38 may be something to look into.

I can also vouch that my e6600 PWNS my old FX-60. Welcome to Hell!

Someone needs to watch more Star Wars...
*puts on SW nerd helmet*

Vader: "Search your feelings you know it to be true."
Luke (In whiny bitch voice): "NOOOO, NOOO!!!"
Vader: "Luke, you can destroy the Emperor, he has foreseen this. It is your destiny. Join me, and together we can rule the galaxy as father and son. Come with me, it is the only way."
(Luke lets go, and goes WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!)

Yea. I thought I'd be getting an X2 rig... and then those damn Core 2 Duo's hit the market. :headexplode:

You won't regret it. :D

Enjoy your quad core. I love mine. I am going to try a cheap P35 mobo for the heck of it and see if I can make 3.7GHz. BX2 is a nice stable board and I am stuck on a 9x multi with a 390FSB.

I ordered the Abit IP35-E from Mwave for 89usd and got a 20usd rebate with it.

I don't bother with RAID so it's not an issue.

If price doesn't concern you and you want bells and whistles; go Asus P5K Premium or Abit IP35 Pro.

Of course you could go X38. We will see how they do, and I'd expect them to be even more than the best P35 in price. Personally I am tired of 250+usd mobos with a lot of features I don't use that overclock 5% better than mobos half their price, if that.
