Hello, i'd like to know if any one can tell me which Intel chipset is the better one out of the
P35, or the G33, and why, or what is the difference between the two.:) Thank You. :respect:"Intel till i die.":rockout:

P35.

G33 is cheaper, less features, but includes onboard video.

If you intend to use a graphics card (and judging by your other thread you do) avoid G33 at all costs.

I wouldn't go that far to avoid G33 totally. But if you do intend on going 45nm Intel based rig, definitely look at the P31/P35 boards. Of course, if you know you can't swing the price of a P35 then start looking into the G31/G33's.

P35 DFI BloodIron, or Abit IP35 Pro are two of the best going right now. The G series isn't for you.;)
