    Help me choose please....

    Hi people,

    I currently have -

    Core 2 Duo E6300 - E6700 - X6800.

    I have the Intel 975XBX motherboard, and I hate it. Its rubbish for overclocking, has hardly any options, its a nightmare bring back from a failed OC, the list goes on.

    So tomorrow, I want to order a new motherboard, Im leaning towards the MSI or the ASUS for the X6800, but I cant decide, so I just wanted your opinions.

    So vote!

    Cheers,
    James

    im going to vote for the msi, purely because ive had a p5wdh and it was dead on arrival and very poorly made. i have just ordered the msi from dabs for £125, if it overclocks moderately and is stable, with no ram/power issues like the DS3, then ill be happy

    I am leaning towards the MSI, as I have had bad experiences with the last 2 ASUS boards I had.

    no mate, only the older version, not the power up version. theres a few bits and bobs on xtreme about it, but they are probably hand picked ones.
