    Socket 775 mobos - chipset difference

    Hello,

    just got a quick question... thinking about upgrading from S939 AMD to a Coroe Intel CPU.

    I saw:
    http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Produ...oductID=459994

    and

    http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Produ...oductID=526999

    I noticed the chipset was different, one an NForce and one an Intel.

    One has wifi built-in too but I don't need it, it'd be for my main PC which is wired to the router.

    Just not quite up to date on the new mobos and CPUs.

    My System: Coolermaster Centurion 5 (black) case, Intel E6750 Core2Duo, Tagan Easy-Con 530W, Asus P5B Deluxe WIFI, OCZ 2GB Kit (2x1GB) DDR2 800MHz/PC2-6400 CL 4-4-4-15 PLATINUM XTC, Samsung SpinPoint 200Gb SATA2 / 2 x Maxtor DiamondMax 10 200Gb SATA, 256Mb Sapphire ATI PCI-E X1950PRO, Creative X-Fi Xtreme 7.1, 19" Daewoo W9ZQ Black Widescreen TFT, 4Mb Virgin Cable Broadband (formerly Blueyonder) with Linksys WRT54GL Wireless-G and DD-WRT firmware.

    could you tell me your reasons?

    Intel a better chipset than Nvidia?

    Yes.

    The nforce 590 board is riddled with problems, it doesnt overclock well either, thats pretty much it. Oh and look at the price of it!

    The Commando, while still new, is based on the 965 chipset, which is stable and overclocks well.

    As recommended in many other threads recently, I would go for the P5B deluxe wifi. Same 965 chipset, but has been around a while, so most of the problems have been ironed out.

    if you're looking at an nForce C2D & you're an Asus fan then look at something like http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Produ...oductID=531222 instead.

    cheers for the info. The one Clunk suggested is a bit cheaper and got a good review on anandtech (or whatever its called).

    Might go for that and either a E6300 or a E4300...

    this one is the one im saving up for. although its an nforce 650, anandtech reviewed it to be a "680 killer", plus its £74 which is cheaper than most. on another forum i've had users report of hitting 500mhz fsb with some good ram with this. but its always down to personal preference. one standard i must have with any board is that it should have a front and rear chassis fan connector. even though my choice of case wont make use of them (antec 900 ), and other stuff like the mobo power connections should be in appropriate places and such. boards like the abit ab9 i think have a floppy or ide or raid connector in a place where the pci slot should be! i'd never take a board like that in my life.

    I've got a P5N-E SLI.
    It's good, it's cheap but it's not perfect.
    e.g. the abit has far more fan connectors & far superior fan control

    i don't mind about the fan connectors if i get the antec 900, they all connect to molex plugs anyway, the abit ab9 board is good with all the 8 fan connectors i think, but from reviews id still go with the asus.

    correction: the weird abit board is the ab9 pro.
