But I'm not sure whether D965WH or ASUS P5B-V will fit into my 5k budget.if one has to buy a D965 based board it has to be either D965WH or ASUS P5B-V
Is D965RY not a good board?Certanly i would suggset not to go for D965RY, the board doesnt worth to be with C2D
assasin said:965RY has ram compatibility issues.either increase ur budget or buy a AMD X2 based system.its better to buy X2 when ur a bit tight on budget.
Again WHY?plz don't go for the intelD965RY or D965WH also P5B VM,
don't think about these 3 mobos,
allwyndlima said:^care to explain how/why it would bottleneck his processor? I own a DG965RY myself & don't seem to find any sort of issues with it nor any issues of the processor being bottlenecked.Also AFAIK many of my friend who own a 965 boards with a medium/high end DX10 cards on it aint complaining of any sort of "bottleneck" issues.

i have specified the ones which are useless,
see the intel onboard gfx sux totally,
also there is no overclocking options available in those mobos
(excluding P5B VM which has limited overclocking capability)
features are absent which are on the chipset based mobo's from ASUS ,
an A I overcloking would have been better for that mobo,
saggygenius said:ha ha.. .
then why to buy a C2D,
C2D's are meant for overclocking,
if anybody dont want to overclock then AM2 is the way to go,
why to waste money
