OK, crunch time! I know I want a new rig (current is Intel Bad Axe with ATI X1900XTX), and the 8800 GT IS THE CARD! Question is, should I go for the 680i chipset (which is tailored for the nvidia GPU) or go for the P35/X38.
Chances of SLI are slim to none, so dual graphics is not a consideration.
Also, I dare ask for board recommendations... :pt1cable: 

Thanks for all input...

Eh I'd personally swing towards the P35...but that's just me.

X38 simply because it has support for DDR3 mem I beleve, and the 45nm processors, and because it goes up to 1333FSB.

P35 supports 1333MHZ CPUs and 45nm CPUs too , if u dont need SLI, go for P35 board and here are some good P35 boards:

Hmm can the p35 not take 45nm? i thoguht someopne said they could....
And cant most mobos go up to 1333? I dunno im not too hot on mobos.

Mepersonally...i would get a p35 because im noty planning on upgrading my ram for a while.

*edit - Post above wasnt there when i sarted :D
