  1. Hello guys,

    I have decided to buy a new computer. What do you guys think about these parts:

    Motherboard: ASUS P5K (non-deluxe)
    Graphics card: ASUS EN8800GT
    CPU: Well I am not sure what to get here, should I go for Core2Duo Q6600, Core2Duo E6750 or E6700, or maybe something else?
    RAM: 2GB Kingston
    PSU: Not sure yet
    HDD: 160GB or 300GB SeaGate/Maxtor

    Well, i need opinions on the CPU and the Motherboard. I have used ASUS Mobos for years, and I am very satisfied, but I there are more models, I also noticed the P5B is a good one. Over the the computer shop, they said the P5K are newer and better ones . I would be grateful if you give some opinions.

    Thanks for reading!

    What price range are you in? Also, I would wait till later January until the new chips come out.

    Well, between 800-1000 Euros (without a monitor of course). And what do you mean with the new chips?

    Wait for the new Penryn quad-cores to be out and have a better overall PC. Also, try the Abit IP35 Pro and the Gigabyte GA-P35C-DS3R and the GA-P35-DS3L as alternatives to the P5K. The GA-P35C-DS3R is the best choice, followed by the Abit mobo. All your other choices are pretty good. Good luck and let us know how it goes. :)

    Thanks for the info, but here in Macedonia where I live , I will definately need to wait at least 1 month for the new stuff.

    I have built multiple systems with the P5K and cannot say enough good things about them. They are solid, easy to setup, great motherboards with lots of options in the BIOS.
