My System Specs


Okay, I've decided to get the Asus P5Q Deluxe which was originally recommended to me.
It should do the job well and have a range of kick ass features.

I've started looking at the prices on Irish websites and emailed the component suppliers who didn't have it so see if they could get it and at what price.

I've put all the prices in here:

Asus P5Q Deluxe Price & Availability

[Ironically the absolute worst price I found was from the managed services company I'm interning with. But that price is from an embedded commerce engine operated by another company, so I might get a better price from someone in sales.]
Main System (now): Q9450 @ 2.667GHz | Asus P5Q Deluxe | 2x1GB Crucial Ballistix DDR2-800 | 2 x Samsung SpinPoint 500GB 7200RPM | Everest 800w | EVGA 9800GTX 512MB GDDR3 in SLi | Samsung 22" LCD Syncmaster 226CW, 1680x1050, 2ms, 3000:1 | G15 | G7 | Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit (goal)

True...is it worth the price to pay big bang for a board that you will use maybe 1 years or 2 max?
