    Hi CSers, me thinking of upgrading my system for better performance. Long time never keep track of what's going on in the mainboard scene now. Any performace board with firewire for the latest core2duo or quartcore??

    Thanks bros! Just checkout the GA-965P-DQ6, looks like a solid motherboard with great specs! Btw, what's the difference between 965P and 975X?

    the 975 boards are probably capable of slightly higher clock speeds if you overclock... but frankly the good 965 boards are already damn good if you ask me.

    there was a good site which had the differences between the 2 boards.. i cant reall offhand let me see if i can dig it up.

    965 will do just fine, unless you are a hardcore overclocker that wanna squeeze out every bit of performance..
