    Re: Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L question

    I can't say for sure if the motherboard will boot or not with the E8400, but it's worth buying a £5 775 CPU (e.g. a 2.6GHz Celeron off eBay), use the celery to boot and update your BIOS. Then sell it again for £5.

    Chances are you will be be able to boot happily, but it will just say 'unrecognised CPU' or something similar. It should work though.

    Of course, you can never tell for sure untili you try it...

    Re: Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L question

    Might be worth checking reviews on this mobo. I saw one that criticised it big time for its 4pin 12v connector which melted during review when using a Core2Quad.

    Yep Lee is a star. Considering how busy they get in there he is always willing to help

    I would personally go with the Abit IP35-E or Dark Raider

    Re: Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L question

    I would personally go for the Gigabyte GA P35 DS3, as it has better power regulation than the L(ite)...

    When you first power on, it should boot fine and simply flash to the latest BIOS....save yourself £10....
