  1. Don't know who your vender is, but most g31 and p45 boards will run the q6600 if you use ddr2. For ddr3, the x48 chipset boards are very good. For ddr1, 3b tech has some asrock 775 dual vsta core2 duo for $27.50. It also works with some ddr2.
  2. i have the q6600 already,and have ddr2 ram. is there any name that u can tell me for the motherboard u think is best?thanks
  3. hi me again i have checked the web and there are so many P45 mother boards out there if u can tell me which is best aswell as has hdmi.thanks
  4. forgot to mention i have the Gigabyte GA-EP31-DS3L but i really aint happy with it cause it dont have any hdmi sockets so im selling that .
  5. I had an asrock g43 board with hdmi port and ddr2 and ddr3 slots; it worked fine.

    Well do you already have the processor? I ask because if you building new I would suggest against it.

    Socket 775 is a dead end, there is NO upgrade path. If you are building new I suggest you go with something newer like a 45nm processor. 65nm is old technology and you dont want to build new around old technology on a dead end socket.

    Otherwise the P45 is by far the best chipset out there for the money. The best overclocker too.

    hi me again i have checked the web and there are so many P45 mother boards out there if u can tell me which is best aswell as has hdmi.and if i didnt have the q6600 what would u had suggested?plz do reply to both question thanks
  7. There is no "best" board; check for features and the price. I like asus, msi, or asrock boards. P45 with an hdmi port may be hard to find. Go for a g41 or g43 board if the hdmi port is a must.
  8. thanks ill look for 1 and then get back to u,1 more question i have a Internal Card Reader but the cable is to short how can i extend that?i mean the cable has an usb connectoer at the end of it but its very hard to slot in..

    these are what i have found and think they are gd but would u say is gd from them just give me 2 plz as im confused alot..thanks
  10. Any of those asus boards you listed will work fine. You don't need to overspend to get quality. Checkout the boards and pick the one with the features you will use everyday. It's not rocket science. If you want a better answer, tell us exactly what you will use your system for. And if blueray and video playback are important, you'll have to pick a different chipset. If your vender doesn't carry a good g41 or g43 board, find another vender. I just recommended a g41 MSI board from newegg for $69.99 for an hdmi build. I have 2 MSI boards, and they both work well; one is g31 for Intel, the other uses a dual core amd with nvidia chipset.
  11. i need a mb for overclocking ,for hdmi,and to play games basiccaly i just want a gd motherboard if u can suggest 1 from the 1s ive written it will be a great help.thanks
  12. Then I would go for the cheapest board on the list, and get a video capture card with built in hdmi port. I don't know anything about video capture cards; that's for another post.
