Please post your votes and reasons on which of these mobo's I should buy
Gigabyte if your going to overclock, and is a better Bios overall .
I was thinking the Gigabyte anyway as I heard they have less compatibility issues etc
They run very cool also if you do get latest bios.
GIGABYTE - Product - Motherboard - Overview - GA-EP45-UD3R (rev. 1.0)
The gigabyte is a crazy quad core clocker. Im getting one myself due to the popularity.
I am leaning to the same board as well with a Q6700.
£104 form Scan.
Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3R, iP45 Express, S 775, PCI-E 2.0x16, DDR2 1066/667/800, SATA II, SATA RAID, ATX - Scan.co.uk
The Q6700 is also on special at Scan at £135

What about the DDR3 version as you are going to get mem, at least you no if you upgrade again you can use the DDR3

My budget has crept too high as it is! Besides I'll be installing XP Pro so getting 3 x 2Gb of DDR3 would be a waste. Don't fancy getting 3 x 1GB!
yea but look at the price .
OCZ Gold 6GB (3x2GB) DDR3 PC3-10666C9 Low-Voltage Triple Channel (OCZ3G1333LV6GK)
Stop it you tart!
I've just saved £21 on the graphics card by buying one off the classified section!
Do 3 stick of DDR3 overclock well enough? I saw somoene's comment about not filling all 4 slots on a DDR2 if Overclocking as it doesn't perform as well.
spend ,spend , spend
if there matched pairs your fine the filling all 4 mem slots i think you mean there not matched or some boards did not like all 4 filled (nvidia 680 etc) that is old news, also was a while back that, friend had same problem but this was in 2007..
one reason on my build a while back i payed extra for 2x 2GB
That Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3R read this also People, will give you info on overclocking etc
