hey guys, I'm looking for an Intel motherboard in the 100-150 dollar range. Most important is speed and stability, followed by OC capability and lastly the features. I dont plan on having more than 2 HDDs, and dont care about RAID. SATA would be sweet though. I was thinking along the lines of MSI P35 plat. Is there anything similar to that or better? PCI-E. DDR2. E6550 probably.

EDIT: SLI is a must.

The MSI P35 Platinum is supposed to be a really good board. I have heard mostly positive things about it. Most mid to highend P35 boards should be good for overclocking stability, so the Abit IP35 or Asus P5K or Gigabyte P35-DS3 could be other viable options.

WEll, forget about OC'ing if you're planning to get a Intel Mobo. But if you want stable and reliable go for intel

I think he meant an Intel chipset board rather then an Intel made motherboard. Only the Bad Axe and Bad Axe 2 975x Intel boards support overclocking, but they make great stable workstation boards and for people who run at stock settings.

well i dont plan to overclock much. i would be happy to get the e675 to 3.0ghz and keep it there.

I had some bad experiences with ASUS. Twice. Also, their boards are usually too expensive and have too many features that I will never ever use or remember after a week. I dont want stuff that I wont use that will just clutter my board, generating useless heat and draining my pockets. 7.1 sound? Don't need it. 10 ethernet ports? Don't need it.
