Default P5E-VM HDMI or GA-G33M-DS2R For Overclocking

So, which board? I am about to make a final decision. The Gigabyte is about $20 less. Which one is the superior board!?!

I'm a sucker for Gigabyte, and I don't care about their choice of colors, since I'm colorblind. In your last thread, some members mentionned that the Asus was a better overclocker.

Flip a coin? Heads or Tails?

Yeah pretty much eh.... The only thing I like better about the Asus is the HDMI out. I could use it temporarily as a media server/folding machine and hook it up to a seconday output on my TV... yeah I think that may be the way to go

Hmmm....significantly cheaper, less SATA ports too....I think I will go Asus this time. Plus I can have it in my hands tonight. Good old local suppliers. And if the G35 chipset it has is anything like the P35, I will be very happy.

Ok, came across this review VR-Zone : Technology Beats - Asus P5E-VM HDMI

2160MHZ FSB Speed?!?! That's rediculous!

Yes, I am definitely bringing this board home tonight.
