    hey guys, i currently have a DFI LP SLI-DR on 939

    i am upgrading to a Quad Core, but i am not really onto the new Intel chipsets, DDR2, multiplicators and ram dividers.

    what would be a good 775 motherboard support Quad Core, for overclocking, with a good chipset? just don't recommend me an ASUS, these are the worst out there :shadedshu

    at the same time, what would be a good overclocking ram? DDR2-800 or higher worth it?

    thanks!

    If your not doing a budget go for an X38 based. If looking for cheaper go P35 for crossfire, 680i for SLi.

    I would say tho the Gigabyte P35 based DS3 looks really nice. Also you have the Abit iP35.

    The 680i chipset is the best you can get for SLI, which I assume you want to keep.

    ASUS does make the best motherboards out there with the 680i motherboard though.

    i am switching to a single HD2900XT, so a SLI board is not needed here.

    the ABIT iP35 does look nice,

    i'm really looking forward to DFI, ABIT and GIGABYTE
