C2D-ASUS marriage Info Tags: Asus Performance Motherboards Last response: October 4, 2006 7:41 PM in Motherboards Share nubeekb October 4, 2006 4:50:14 AM Hi, Please let me know what would be the optimum solution (price/performance) for ASUS MoBo if I buy a C2D E6400: 1. With Onboard graphics 2. Without Onboard graphics would the P5B series be reliable for C2D....how would you compare it with Intel Original Desktop DG965WH? In case I buy a P5B-VM and add a graphics card after some time, would there be any issue? Thanks More about : c2d asus marriage info Assman October 4, 2006 5:28:52 AM i got e6400 & p5b, i love that "marriage" LOL overclocks like crazy what are you going to use the rig for? are you planning on ocing? nubeekb October 4, 2006 5:51:39 AM Sorry...I won't OC...I am not into xtreme gaming...my applications would be more on Audio-Video rendering, watching DVDs, using Matlab and occasional 3D gaming...

Doughbuy October 4, 2006 1:48:14 PM I would just get the P5B, and get a low end graphics card for around 100, much better performance and it will last you longer... No point in getting a board with integrated and upgrading later...
