Had to RMA my Asus P5N32-E back to Newegg.

This Mobo is not in stock so they will probably let me get a different model.

I want to O/C my E6600 to 3.2 or higher and do not plan to use SLI.
the second video slot would be useful for a 3rd monitor.

Should I get a P5W DH Deluxe or a P5B Deluxe? Or?

The eVGA 680i board is similar as it has the same chipset although if you're not gonna go SLi it might just be overkill as it has 3 PCIe slots although I've heard some good things as to its overclocking potential and stability and its cheaper than the P5N32-E SLi board (@ newegg)

Here is a link to an article about it:

It's the board I'm gonna get in my next build. Either this or a 650i board probably.

My friend and I built our systems at the same time.

I used the ASUS 680i board and he used the eVGA 680i board. He could not get the sound to work on the eVGA board and I had major problems with the Asus board.

My friend changed to the ASUS P5W DH board and it is working great. So I would consider that as well.

I would like to know if the newer chipset on the P5B offers any advantages over the older but more O/C able P5W?
