Which motherboard is going to be better? I just bought a Intel Core2 Duo. 3Ghz 1333FSB, 6mb L2 Cache. Im looking for a motherboard now. I looked at an ASUS and an INTEL board. Not sure which brand to go with. Would an ASUS P5Q be better than an INTEL board.

In generalities Intel boards are very stable, but don't overclock very well. Asus boards overclock well and are pretty stable. Most enthusiasts will go with Asus, but i have friends that swear by intel boards. Gaming = Asus

when examining a prospective mobo some of the things to keep in mind,,1,,possible cpu upgrade path,,2,,layout of mobo in relation to the case it is going into,3,built in features,firewire,number & placement of usb ports,etc,etc,4,will it support extra long cards when installed,,ideally you want to get the mostest for the leastest,,,and last ??,but not least warranty and customer service from seller...:)
