Hi All,

I'm building a new machine, and this is the first time I'm building an expensive machine (I'm not rich :kaola:  ) I'm going for Intel E8400 processor, and here's the headache, which board to choose, advice?

Asus P5Q Deluxe and Asus P5E.

I'm not going to use the CrossFire thing, plan to get 8600GT or 9600GSO, not going to overclock, yet. Basically won't use for heavy gaming.

The EPU thingy sure got me, but I'm not into the 6-Engine thing as reviewed on other site which it tweak clock speed and does not much different.

Will be put all things up with 4GB DDR800 RAM into CoolerMaster CM690.

Advice please.

The P43/P45 is a new motherboard, only been out a week or 2. It features the PCIex2.0 socket which doubles the bandwidth from the older PCIex16 1.0 Early review of the mobo http://www.anandtech.com/mb/showdoc.aspx?i=3309
worthwhile to me unless you get into the X38/X48 price point

Yeah, You made the point. Thanks, I made up my mind to go for P5Q Deluxe already.

go for a 8800GT much better than your current picks. You can pick them up pretty cheap after rebates.

I'm living outside U.S. The Asus EN8800GT HD/2DVI/DDR3 256 256 cost me around 500 on my local currency, it is over my budget too much already.

Is using single nVidia card on CrossFire board working well right? This is what I found on Internet.

Well don't go for Asus, I was reading an article that proved that the Gigabyte boards DO save MORE energy than Asus boards. Go for this board http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... there is no point in paying a premium for a p45 board if you don't plan to crossfire with AMD cards.

And yes your single video card will work fine. You just can't use 2 nvidia cards thats all.
