    Hi guys,

    I am slowly getting closer to completeing a complete new system for only £1,800.

    Thing is I am still unsure on the motherboard, I originally specced in the:
    Intel DP965LT 965 (Socket 775) PCI-Express DDR2 Motherboard

    and was then told that the:
    Gigabyte GA_965P_DS3 (Socket 775) PCI-Express DDR2 Motherboard
    ...would be a better suggestion.

    However the last bit of information I got for the Gigabyte GA_965P_DS3 (Socket 775) PCI-Express DDR2 Motherboard was that:

    I don't really want to change my choice of Graphics Card or Processor, so is there a motherboard that will work, or an update or something that'll fix it?

    Thanks guys

    Hold fire for a while. Core2 is delayed by a few weeks so you won't be fully up and running anyway which might herald the nForce5 or ATi RD600 chipsets/ more mature BIOS's for the current boards. All the present boards aren't really worth it IMO.
