:sol:  Hi, i want to upgrade my mother board,present I am using Intel DG41rq, and I am planning to upgrade a board from Asus here is link of my choice tell me guys, which one you liked and for what, I am using this pc for Watching 1080p Movies, 3d rendering, and a little bit for games, especially I am going to use this PC for maya,3ds Max, and Adobe Master Suite. So please tell me which board is better for all these apps to run, and don't forget OC is important too,if there is any board do better performance than these, please paste a link,And my Rig specs are intel dg41rq board, E7500 processor, 4gb ddr2 ram (present 4gb if the upgrade done and that board supports it will be 8gb)320gb hdd,750watt Psu, genuine win 7 x64 ultimate, please suggest, and don't tell me to upgrade to sandy bridge, cause I am waiting for Ivy bridge Processors. :sol:  :sol:  :sol: 

thanks in advance :sol:  :sol:  :sol:

dont waste your money on another 775 motherboard. go to ebay and get an nforce 780i or something if you want a good 775 board for cheap. Its really a bad move though, you wont get your moneys worth for perfrormance, you will get an extra couple hundred MHz out of your cpu which wont achieve anything. just save up your cash for a new motherboard/cpu/ram.

The real question is are you overclocking now ?.....if you are then as the other post states you will only get a bit more even with the best of the best o/c friendly 775 mobo. To be honest I wouldnt bother as unless you arent o/c now then you simply wont see £50 worth of improvement IMHO. If not then read on.....

Plain and simply the MSI P35 Platinum, the p45 version might be a little better but is more to buy and gives only 10-15mhz on the max fsb achievable which with your cpu will be irrelevent - FOR GOD SAKE BUY NOTHING WITH NVIDIA HEATERS ON THEY WILL FAIL RAPIDLY AND ANY SECOND HAND BOARDS (UNLESS UNUSED) HAVE VERY VERY SHORT LIFSPANS..

Serisouly that isnt a troll I have spent so much time changing out failing nv based mobos that I for one (and as are virtually all other techs) very happy they arent in the chipset biz anymore. Before I get slated I will point out their massive power requirements and 100c (worst ones) operation of all but a couple of their chipsets and the FACT that due to this they fail very quickly in real terms. The obvious ones are the start of USB issues which go on to SATA issues and finally basic memory errors......google it and fine out for yourself.

Anyway rant over about that (purely making sure you dont make a mistake) the P35's are usually good for 400fsb as a STOCK speed with theaforementioned MSI's hitting 500mhz on a few golden boards (my own topped at 504mhz for ex). Only a few ASUS or GIGABYTE boards come close to this model but it is quite rare is the only thing.

Excellent cooling / clearence / value and RELIABILITY.......after all Intel chipsets have to work.....also as other poster said - ebay for s/h it REALLY isnt worth your time spending out on new unless you can find a bargain.

ALSO this particular mobo has HARDWARE JUMPERS to force a base FSB which is incredibly usefull on the lower rated cpus that normally have problems getting past a point (even though they will do it) - known as the fsb wall if you have looked up o/c on 775 etc. For ex I have my 8400 jumpered to 400fsb which gives me scope to get up to 504 but at the default 333 it will top out at 478mhz.....same chip - same ram etc etc.
With all of that said and hopefully read though the only real thing Id do is maybe try a quad core rather than a new mobo ?......poss more money but also possibly more reward ?.

:sol:  :sol:  :sol:  thanks for the reply,I am little bit confused here, why should it be a bad move to change the board,cause i am waiting to change my rig after release of bulldozer and ivy bridge processors, for that long time I am tired with Intel's dg41rq board that's why I am asking a performing board in lga 775 platform. :sol:  :sol:  :sol:  thanks again.

Well to be honest if you cant find a descent gigabyte / asus / msi P35 or P45 mobo dont bother (cheap on ebay of course). As for cpu so long as its above a 2.66ghz quad on 775 it will make a good chunk off difference to what you run and a few games will play better as well - badly coded ones like GTA4 / black ops etc which are terrible console ports.

I really think however that spending about 50/60 on a mobo OR up to 80 / 100 on a cpu (second hand off eay) will really only annoy you as its not going to make all that much difference aside the overclocking issue or multi threaded apps you put that you use.

My personal thoughts here are that you would be better off being a little more patient as bulldozer is almost here and looks to be a good option which might be cheaper than anyone thinks. Otherwise ivy will be about 10-15% overall better than sandy but will cost a good chunk more.

Really ask yourself if putting a plaster on the wound now will help rather than just sitting tight and saving the money to put into a better setup in a couple months time ?.....

IF you really really want to play now though as I asked earlier are you overclocking at the moment at all ?. If not then a p35 / 45 mobo from any of the top 3 makers will let you crank that cpu up to around 3.3ghz with ease and possibly more with descent cooling which WILL net you a good boost, that would be my last word on it as when I took my 3ghz up to 4.4 it blows any quad out of the water and believe it or not keeps pace with even a stock i5 in most benches !. However as Im personally limited to a 1650x1080 res Ive given up and stick it at 3.6 / 400fsb / 800 ram which is nice and neat and maxes every game out on my rig as it is fine.

Anything else you need let us know....

:sol:  :sol:  :sol:  thanks for reply, I am not a hardcore gamer, but my main use of my rig is maya & 3ds max, and i am thinking about this list can you check this list once http://processormatch.intel.com/CompDB/SearchResult.asp... here i found that my board supports xeon processors too, then what about xeons on this rig, I doubt about xeon's support for my board! :sol:  :sol:  :sol:  if buying a new board or processor in this movement is waste of money? then what should i do to increase my rig's performance? thanks :sol:
