[New System Build] Please advise Tags: New Build Asus Motherboards Systems Last response: July 27, 2007 10:51 PM in Systems Share Matt_Prelude July 27, 2007 10:46:27 PM Hey, me and my friend are putting together a new machine and need some help deciding on the parts. We are thinking about: - Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 Dual Core Processor (2.4GHz, 4MB, 1066MHz FSB, LGA 775 - MPN: BX80557E6600) - We are having trouble deciding on the motherboard. We were thinking either - Asus P5K http://stores.tomshardware.com/search_getprod.php/maste... - Asus P5K Deluxe http://stores.tomshardware.com/search_getprod.php/maste... - Asus P5B Deluxe http://stores.tomshardware.com/search_getprod.php/maste... - Or any other suggestion you may have, our price range for the motherboard is $150 -180 - We have pretty much everything else we need. Any recommendations? Thanks in advance.

EDIT: I'd go for a board without DDR3 support for now, DDR3 won't really become mainstream for at least 18 months. EDIT#2: Was about to say too, go with either the E6550 or E6750.
