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

what are you going to use the rig for? are you planning on ocing?

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...

You can usually turn off the onboard video in the bios if you decide to buy one later.

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...

that's exactly what ocing IS FOR, if you were into xtreme gaming you'd have to get a good video card.
