  1. Whats the best Intel chip set for a core2 duo if overclocking is not a factor?

    The P31, P43 and G31 chipsets are great for that. The P965 is also pretty decent.

    I have a p35 and was thinking about building a new rig and just wanted to know what upgrade was best if I was not planning to overclock

    Go for a G31-based motherboard if the new build is a non-gaming one. For a gaming build, a P43 board will be fine.
