I have DG965RY + Core 2 Duo E6300.
Currently ATI X200 > X3000 but that's purely because of the poor G965 chipset drivers.
With newer drivers about to be released (Version 14.26) the performance would be better than ATI X200. Version 14.26 will add full Hardware support for Pixel Shaders and would be DirectX 9.0C compliant.

I am waiting for the drivers...

The current performance is also OK. I can run Half-Life 2, Far Cry etc. on low settings.

3D Xgl Desktop on GNU/Linux works like a charm with no slowdown...

So, X3000 is not that bad... and with newer drivers it would get better.

Hi Guys

I am planning on buying an Asus motherboard. I was thinking of P5B or P5B-V.
I checked the Asus site. It says P5B has P965 Chipset and P5B-V has G965. What is the difference between these two chipsets.
I know that P5B can be overclocked, but what about P5B-V? The P5B-V specs on Asus website shows that it can be overclocked. I was thinking about buying P5B-V board for time being till I can save enough money for better Graphics card (Dx10). If I buy P5B then I'll have to shell out at least 2.5k for a decent graphics card. Can anybody advice me on whether to go for P5B or P5B-V?

BTW I have already purchased C2D E6600.

buy gigabyte mainboard, the all solid capacitors design will definitely benefit you in the long run..... also the ga-965g-ds3 is a good choice, it is also a good overclocker of c2d proccys
