    What mobo?

    Hi all,

    Just wondering what mobo i should go with?

    Asus Commando i965
    Asus P5W DH Deluxe i975X

    I’ll be doing a fair bit of gaming and a bit of overclocking. Nothing major for now, probably around the 2.8ghz mark and might go to 3.0ghz if it’s worth it. Other task will be media storage and general photoshop tweaks.

    I would be grateful if you could recommend me a board and state why you would pick that one. I’ve been recommend the Commando by others as it OC’s better but it would be nice to have the latest chipset. Or is there not an awful lot of difference? Would also be good to hear from owners of both boards, as they have been in the market for a little bit now.

    Thanks again all

    Darren

    I have the board, its great. Well built, lovely to use, solid as a rock and it has some wicked features.

    Although the Commando has good reviews i havent seen it in stock anywhere.. yet again i havent checked in ages.
