the e2180 is great cpu with intel chipsets

the low fsb allows you to use low end memory

fsb400 =1600 you need 1066 memory with a 1066 cpu at 2:1 ratio

with the 800fsb cpu you can use 800mhz memory such that oc to 850-900mhz for 3.2-3.4ghz systems

The 2180 is a great budget chip (I have a 2160), especially for overclocking. The e6750 is starting to become less attractive as the e8400 has just released. The e8400 is slightly mor4e expensive, but provides some great gains depending upon what you use it for.

It would be easier to help if you gave more information about what you were planning to do with the CPU and how much you want to spend.

Hey I have that same card. There is not a big price difference between it and the 8800GT 512MB. For the love of GOD don't buy the 320MB GTS. I have an e8400 running at 3.4GHz and Crysis is barely playable at medium settings. I know on the reviews people are saying they can run it on high with that card. I can run it on high too with my fast processor. However, be prepared for spikes in framerates that make it unplayable and frustrating. The EVGA 8800GT is not that much more than the 320MB GTS. Against, do NOT get the 320MB GTS. You are shooting yourself in the foot and throwing away your money. I have this card and am telling you from experience. Its not a bad card and I can run UT3 maxed out with 60+ FPS, but there is better out there with such a small price difference, it would be a crime to get the 320mb gts over the 8800GT

Vote: eVGA 8800GT, I think I paid $229 for mine last week. If you want the GTS you should cough up the extra dough for the 512MB version.

Can The EVGA 8800GT with PCI Express 2.0 Be Run On The GA-P35-DS3L? Newbe, Sorry If Dum Question.
February 27, 2008 7:20:20 PM

The 8800GT will run since it is backwards compatible but only in PCIe 1.1 mode. You'll need a X38/X48 board to run in PCIe 2.0.

Yeah for a new build like that get the GT 512. I run a 8800gt 512 on a GaP35-DS3R and it runs fine.

I just bought this board from new egg,not here yet.
I also thought backwards compatible,but look at this site
and click on the (8. PCI Express 2.0 )link?
But I see smartel7070 uses it and works find?

I have this Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L motherboard with an Intel Q6600 CPU and the Antec NeoPower 500W PSU. I am getting an intermittent no-start condition with this combination. I suspect the PSU is the culprit. If I disconnect all of the modular power cables, I have better odds of getting the system to POST. Once the system is booted, the power is stable.

Has anyone else experienced this? Is there a fix? I'm going to contact Antec support and will update if I learn anything.

My mobo is v2.0 with BIOS F7.

get 8800 gts the 512 version + u might wanna try "fat micron chip" :D

+1 for the 8800gt, it your best bet. also i wiuld go with the e8200 for your CPU. although none of your choice is bad.

Don't get the arctic cooler, because it doesn't blow air down onto the nearby northbridge and PWM area, like the stock Intel cooler does. Either use the Intel cooler, which is fine, or get something like a Zalman 8700.

Or use case fans to get to the northbridge, like me ;)
