One of the latest boards from Asus is the P5Q Deluxe with the Intel P45 chipset. It's the DDR2 version, but they also make a DDR3 version too.

The DDR 2 version is the one i'm looking in to at the moment.

Have a look here for a review... http://www.mikhailtech.com/Reviews/ASUS ... luxe/page1

I personally would not touch another nVidia chipset, not with all the data curruption stuff thats still going on!!! :wink:

But it's fair to say that the nVidia stuff is a bit faster, but at a cost of your mobo potentially dieing after 6 months.

I would agree with that bober. I personally despise "BioStar" motherboards due to an issue I had with a couple of them and an ATI video card I used to have. As for nVidia boards, I like better even though I had one fail due to capacitors going bad. It would seem that nVidia boards tend to like me also. :)

Edit: nVidia motherboards from MSI work real good for myself.

After many years of motherboard grief, I settled on Intel motherboards 2-3 years ago.

Haven't had a problem since. All of the 'reliability' things that GB, Asus, etc, etc are only now engineering into their boards have been standard on Intel for many many years.
