Needing suggestions on motherboards

Recommended Posts

Ok i have a new Intel Quad 6700 coming, and looking for a decent board to put it on. Im not real crazy for sli cause in not a hard core gamer. Heres what ive been looking at so far. I like to try and stay in the price range of the board

This is the motherboard that will come with this quad, but looking for something to be a good overclocker, and stable

If I was going to get a new board I'd get the one that came with the Quad. After reading about it on the edge site I wanted it because it has onboard video and I don't play games.

Yah ive been doing the intel edge for two years now. They give out some high priced hardware at a great price. Last year i got the core 2 duo 6300 and intel board, and a copy of vista ultimate for $219. Well with this quad im going to make the leap to vista, and hope everything goes well

Both boards i have posted will run the quad. Im thinking of holding off on a board right now just use the board that will come with the quad. For now im just going to get the video card, and the memory

That is probably the best thing to do. When you start overclocking you need a good CPU cooler, a case with good air flow ,if you don't have them you will overheat that Quad fast.

Yeah i like to overclock it, I'm not for shur this board will let me do that. The case its going in its going to get enough air flow. What i like about  is it has a vent hole on the side of the case so the cpu fan just blows the heat strait out of it
