Hi everyone, I'm thinking about building a new mid-level system. I wonder if there's any point in buying a motherboard based on the new X38 chipset (or X48 for that matter), and not sticking to the P35 released in June '07. As you guys know, the X38 comes with a native 1600MHz FSB, 1200MHz DDR2 or DDR3, and the PCI-E 2.0 standard - 2 PCI-Express slots @ x16 (5Gpbs). Since I don't intend to mount 2 graphic cards (Cross-Fire or SLI), is there any point in getting the latest X38 chipset? Some mainboards based on the P35 are reasonably priced (e.g. Asus P5K, Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3, Gigabyte GA-P35C-DS3R) and offer some decent specs: http://usa.asus.com/products.aspx?l1=3&l2=11&l3=534&l4=0&model=1637&modelmenu=1 http://www.giga-byte.com/Products/Motherboard/Products_Spec.aspx?ProductID=2748 http://www.giga-byte.com/Products/Motherboard/Products_Overview.aspx?ProductID=2749 Any thoughts are welcome!
