MB recomendation asus or gigabyte for q6600

I'll be buying Q6600 soon. I would probably try to overclock it to 3Ghz. Could someone recommend a Asus or Gigabyte motherboard for price around 100-150$?

  1. ASUS P5Q for $135, or ASUS P5Q pro for $150. Both have the P45 chipset.
    I'm getting the P5Q pro because it supports crossfire, I may or may not want to use that later.
    If you want gigabyte, look into the GA-EP45-DS3L series. Same chipset as the P5Q, but it only costs $110.
  2. OK, thanks, I'll have these in mind.

    Keep in mind P45's pcie2.0x8 will bottleneck the hd4000s in cf.
