Which Motherboard is best? Asus P5QL - PRO or Asus P5Q - SE2? Tags: Asus Computer Motherboards Product Last response: September 3, 2009 12:32 PM in Motherboards Share JazzaAUS August 30, 2009 3:14:18 AM Hey all, I'm in the process of buying a new computer. I was wondering which motherboard is the overall best performer for the components of my computer; Asus P5QL - Pro or Asus P5Q - SE2? The specs of my computer, CPU - Intel Core2 Quad Q8400 2.66G RAM - 8GB DDR2 Memory - 800 GB Graphics - Nvidia GeForce 1GB 9500GT Btw, I'm pretty much a noob when it comes to the actual hardware of the computer, so I'm just wondering is this a good motherboard to run these components. Thank you for your time. More about : motherboard asus p5ql pro asus p5q se2 evongugg a b V Motherboard September 3, 2009 12:27:53 PM I would get a Gigabyte P45 motherboard. There are several models. Gigabyte is better than Asus at the moment in my opinion. You need a 64-bit operating system with that much RAM. m 0 l MaDMagik a b V Motherboard September 3, 2009 12:29:42 PM Well these boards get mixed reviews, especially the p5q-l. Im the first one to suggest asus but if thats your budget than you would probably be better off with that http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Is it going to be gaming machine? Because I would sacrifice 4 gigs of ram to get something better than that 9500gt m 0 l Related resources asus p5q se2 motherboard pci express not working - Forum Asus P5Q SE2 or Asus P5P43TD PRO ? - Forum Asus P5Q SE2 Motherboard a good choice or nightmare? - Forum ASUS P5Q SE2 MOTHERBOARD - Forum Pent.D945 on a asus P5Q SE2 MOTHERBOARD - Forum Can't find your answer ?
