    Where are you getting the Q6700 from? Or did you mean QX6700?

    Anyway, unless you REALLY need SLI, avoid the 680I chipset, because, not only is buggy as hell, it is also slower than the 965 and P35 chipsets, which both support quad core well, although the P35 is the better of the two.

    I'm going to buy it at the end of june. Its going to be released on the 22nd of june

    but I can only choose from those two and I thought I would get the XFX as I'm also getting the 8800 Ultra XFX

    so what do you think? the XFX or Intel ? and will they support the Q6700 ?

    Which two? You only mentioned one

    If you only have one graphics card, there isnt much point in buying an SLI board.

    XFX 680i LT OR GA-965P-DQ6

    Gigabyte Vs. XFX

    I'm sorry if I'm confusing you. I'm asking wether they will support Q6700 and which will run it better and overally a better mobo

    No, its ok, was me, i thought you meant two CPUs.

    To be honest, I wouldnt recommend either of those boards.

    Is there any reason that it has to be one of those two?

    I live in Egypt buy I'm buying the CPU from the USA and I can't ask the same person to also carry the mobo.
    The only two mobo that said anything about Quad Core support on the box were these two. So I just want to know if they really support it and which is better

    and Why are they that bad?

    The 680i chipset is buggy, with quite a lot of unresolved problems.

    Out of the two you mention, I would go for the Gigabyte, but I would see if you can get hold of a P35 based board as the quad core support is better.

    Yep, that was written on 20th Novermber 2006, and on paper the 680i looks great, but in reality, it can be horrible to use.

    A good place to have a look at the 680i problems, are the evga forums..or google 680i problems
