    I am really confused about the mobo to go for. It's like DG965WH has onboard graphics, so even if something happens to my pci-e graphics card, I will have some sort of display! ASUS P5B has no onboard graphics, but it supports quad-core!!! What do you suggest?

    For Gaming and Overclocking go with ASUS

    For Stable and best performance but No Overclocking go with Intel

    Thats like, a year and a half later. When DDR3 launches with Yorkfield. Till Kentsfield exists, the mobo will remain the same. And FYI, Quad is already out and running in a few many systems worldwide.

    Hello Soumya,

    The Asus P5B is a better more performance oriented board, I would recommend it over the Intel 965.

    Simple suggestion... Just dont think anymore..get Asus P5B ...
    You get boast full of performance, as well at decent prize.
    Not having onboard GPU is secondary thing...but when you have PCI-ex GPU then why worry about that... It would be totally Lame thing to do, if you went for Intel...
