Why did you sell your p5b-e? Those are great boards! The P5N32-E is a great board but its gonna be $100 more than your P5B and allow SLI.

The P5K I say don't bother because I don't believe the p35 chipset is worth all the hype since the x38 is coming out.

I'm sticking to my guns with the 965 or 680i chipset until the next SLI board comes out or a good replacement board that isn't crossfire based.

I think if you go 680i, you should grab eVGA. They seem to be better boards.

I think the P35 is the way to go at this moment in time. Unless you need SLI. If you can hold out, wait for the X38.

x38 and p35 are both crossfire setups and regardless if they are SLI or not I refuse to run anything ATI based.

I would go P5K out of those 2.

I have an EVGA and this was the first system I built.... had lots of extras, lots of room and placement seemed to be fair and well thought out. Came an abundance of sata cables and such, and the intructions were well detailed and very clear to follow. these are the only photos I have of it.....

Plus eVGA has awesome warranty/RMA I hear. Didn't they replace a whole bunch of boards for quad-core users?

well take this with a grain of salt, but if you venture to there fourms (and I admire any company that supports a public fourm to deal with there products), you will read alot of people have problems with some of there products. At first it spooked me into almost looking at another brand with all the threads saying :my stuff doesn't boot", "my board is fried", "blah", "blah"....... but if you look beyond that you will see alot of people very happy with there products, lifetime warranty, and RMA program. I myself have not had an issue with them. Some have , some haven't.....im very happy....but do what I did and read the fourms of the specific brand or company you want, and see what folks are saying..... see what there overclocking too, see how or if the hardware is user friendly....anyways..... sorry I'm rambling.... what was i talking about??
