    The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt.

    Not a good mobo. First of all,it doesn't support quad cores. Second, the FSB is slow, only 800MHz which will be fine for the e4300 and e4400, but not above. Also, highest speed ram supported is DDR2 533.

    I the GA965P-DS3 and am very happy with it. I'm running w/ an e6600 and have the option to upgrade to a quad core. Also, it supports DDR2 800 ram (which I am using).

    I'm not saying for you to use my board, but I'd keep looking.

    ASUS is always a good choice. I have used the P5N before and it hasn't let me down yet.

    For your upgrade, are you only going to upgrade your cpu or cpu and mobo? If just your cpu, you may want to invest in a good mobo if you're going to get a quad-core. A good mobo (but a little pricey) is the ASUS P5B Deluxe/Wi-Fi. I currently have that board and there is nothing bad about it yet and I've had it for about 3 months now. Great overclocking, cooling, support, expandability.

    Same problem with the P5ND2 board:

    Does not support Quad core.
    Only supports memory up to 667.

    I think a lot of gamers are going to be disappointed with Quad Core technology, since initially few games will be written to take advantage of the processor's benefits.
    .
    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
