    These are them:

    Asus P5Q Pro
    Asus P5Q Deluxe
    Asus P5Q3 Deluxe Wifi-AP

    Need a board for my Core 2 CPU and I'm running out of time on Ebay. All the reviews are much of a muchness so I need some quick opinions.

    My current (broken) board is a P5W DH Deluxe. Are the above superior to my current board, or not?

    I like to play games!

    Thanks,
    Tom.

    Asus P5Q3 Deluxe as it supports DDR3 and DDR3 is a lot cheaper then DDR2. and it should overclock better.

    More memory bandwidth = win

    The DDR3 one.

    Depending on the price. If you already have plenty of DDR2, the cheapest one.

    P5Q Deluxe although i don't think you need it. A better Video card would be better and there after a CPU.

    Well yeah, but if the board is a lot more expensive it'd be a waste imo. It's a gone platform anyway.

    My RAM is completely blown as well, so I'm easy on that.

    If I were you, Id migrate to a new platform. Sice youd be buying ddr3s, reinstalling OS and stuff, might as well go for a Sandy, or a 2nd hand nehalem

    If you can get it cheap, get the P5Q3.
    Otherwise, why not just get an i3-21xx, and a cheap SB mobo? It would be much better performance for you; it would literally be a 2x performance increase in most areas and +30-50% in games.

    I went with a P5Q Deluxe.

    Any recommendations on a stable and fast RAM for this board in the £40 to £50 ($64-$80) price range?

    Some examples I've collated from Amazon:

    G.Skill F2-6400CL5D-4GBPQ
    Kingston KHX8500D2K2/4G
    Kingston KHX8500D2T1K2/4G
    Kingston KHX6400D2K2/4G
    Kingston KHX6400D2LLK2/4G
    Corsair TWIN2X4096-6400C5C

    Im sorry.

    But why ask people to pick the best board out of the line up when youre gonna ignore what we pick anyway?

    It's just the way things worked out. Money, availability etc.
