Default Need mother opinions..

I'm on newegg, have an E6600, 2gb OCZ plat. rev2 DDR2800 in my cart. Im ready to order but am absolutely torn as to what motherboard to get.
I want to OC but not extreme and SLI is not an issue.
down to:
ASUS P5B Deluxe (i965)
ASUS P5N-E SLI(i650)(will req. zalman chipset coolers)

Thank for any help

I would say the P5B Deluxe would be your better choice.

my mother said get the P5B Deluxe

intel chipsets are generally extremely stable and still feature rich. it will OC the amount you want and since you dont care about SLi, then its perfect

Defiantly the P5B Deluxe if your not going sli.

With the P5B Vanilla I am running 425fsb x 8 to get my E6400 @ 3.4Ghz stable. And the P5B Deluxe is a much better motherboard than mine. (Problem with this mobo is you can only set ram up to 2.1v. And that has limited my overclock). The deluxe has a lot more options too.
E6400 @ 3200 mhz (400x8) 1.45v || 2x 8800 GT || OCZ 600Watt sli || 22" LG Flatron
2x1GB Apacer PC2-6400 @ 850mhz 4-4-4-15 || Asus P5N32-E Sli Plus || Zalman 9500 AT || 200GB SATA / 320GB SATA WD HD
