Those are older boards. Get the later G41 board if you are going this route.

The G41 is not as good of an overclocker as the EP45-UD3 is, but it appreciably less expensive.

Currently, newegg has the ES2L for less than $60:

Intel G31/P31 chipset is hard limited to 4GB total RAM. Many G31/P31 boards do not implement memory remapping and will be limited to 3.25 GB when 4GB is installed, maybe a little more or less, depending on other hardware addressing space needs.

Further, any G31/P31 boards that have four DIMM sockets will have an additional limitation in that when installing four modules, all four must be single-rank or single-sided.

I still need assurance with the ga-g31 es2c/es2l board if this can detect 4gig at maximum dim slot installed!
