Which Motherboard is best? Asus P5QL - PRO or Asus P5Q - SE2?

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.

  1. 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.
  2. 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=N82E16813128372

    Is it going to be gaming machine? Because I would sacrifice 4 gigs of ram to get something better than that 9500gt
  3. I suggest these two:

    GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3R LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail

  4. The second one has 2 PCI-express ports for Crossfire or dual video cards.
    If you don't need them you can get the first one.
