  1. If u want SLI , then Both P5N32-E SLI PLUS and P5N32-E SLI are rock soild boards and both will be good for OC'ng , the main difference between those is as u said the chipset ,

  2. If you are planning to go with SLI then the Plus version or a 680i board is your best option but if you aren't then there are much better boards available. I have the P5N32-E SLI and if I were to buy today I would choose a P35 board or wait a couple weeks and get a X38. That said if you look at my sig I have a E6300 and DDR2800 and have gotten this board up to FSB1950 so it overclocks well just not as well as the newer boards.
  3. well, if im not going with sli, what board would be nice for my system then ?
  4. ASUS P5K-E
    GIGABYTE P35 DS3R
    ABIT IP35 PRO
  5. Asus, Abit and Gigabyte all have a few nice P35 boards priced from $90-$245 depending on extras.

    This is a good, inexpensive option

    This has all the bells and whistles

    This is a good option inbetween

    Some have DDR2 compatability, some are DDR3 and some are compatable with both. The P35 boards are just about the best currenly available just look around and get a board with the options you will use at a price you want to spend.
