    Hey there, I am getting a new motherboard soon and was wondering should i wait for PCI-e 2 or should i just go ahead and buy? i had in mind the Gigabyte GA-965P-DQ6.
    Any other board i should get at all, anything would be appreciated thanks!

    Perfect mobo

    Have a look at this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16813121059
    Very stable, very good quality mobo - if you have one time a mobo used like this, you don't want miss it again!!! Not shitty pieces from asian manuf., with a lot of useless features - just computing! :toast:
    Good luck.

    DQ6 has my endorsement - I love it!!! I would have stuck to abit (I've had four of thier boards), but until they get thier act back together, I'm loving my Gigabyte.

    as price/performance ratio suggests i would surely go for the DFI one I gave above, it's blazing performance and crossfire compatibility is gr8, and it's LGA775 meaning intel, that you have ;)
    ALso, it's a DFI product can't go wrong with them :D. I plan to get it too, but after budget's fix for me :) (just spent $$$ on a 23" LCD and some quality speakers)....
    ppl have got 4+ ghz on the dfi one with an E6600.

    as per reviews, NO :) Your p5b dlx beats Dq6 in oc'ing, but dq6 has quad offers like quad lan, quad bios and somewhat. but dlx beats it! BUT, i saw a vid on youtube about some ppl have gone above 4ghz with e6600 on the dfi one, so it pwnz :rockout:

    Probably not - mine hit a wall at 480... but I suspect that not too many other p5b-dlx's would either. The clockability limit of a 965 motherboard is not unlike a CPU - there is some amount of luck involved.
