Ok, i narrowed it down to 4 motherboards for my new build up. Its going to be OC'ed using a e6600 cpu. Here are the contenders

ASUS P5W Deluxe


ASUS P5B Deluxe


They all seem good and are around the same price range. Do any of them stand out above the rest?

thanks :D  :D

c'mon people. 123 views and not one person could pipe in with an opinion. I look on the web and they all get good reviews but there must be some deciding difference between them. I dont feel like spending $250 then realizing i made the wrong decision. Any imput would be appreciated.

Go for either the ASUS P5W, or P5N32.

The other 2 have lower chipsets. The P5N has Nvidia 590, so IF you run SLI, then they will BOTH run at 16x speed.

Didnt look at their OC ability's.

P.S. Could you lend me a few buck for my MOBO?

ASUS make great boards with good features. I've got the P5b Deluxe and have managed to do some mild OC'ing, update the BIOS and generally find my way around very easily. However I'm a complete novice at this so my advise may not count for much.
