Help Me Pick My Motherboard!

    Hey Forum!

    I'm building a new daw featuring the Core 2 Duo chip. Here's the link to the one I picked up from Newegg.


    I also was trying to pickup the ASUS P5B Deluxe/WiFi-AP LGA 775 Intel P965 motherboard but they are currently out of stock. :(

    Here's the link to the board.

    So... since they are out, I was wondering if there's another motherboard that would be BETTER than this one! :D

    I also have ordered the Corsair 2GB DDR2 XMS2-6400C4 TwinX (2x1GB) for memory as well.
    I will be loading XP64 for my OS.

    Any advice would be appreciated!

    i cant say i know of anything wrong with those parts... but if i were going to do something like this i would check out what the big boys are specing in thier systems and copy it if i could... there's gotta be a reason they use these parts...

    Thanks dementedchord!

    I'm hip to Scott and ADK. In fact one day I hope top have them build a DAW for me! :D

    As far as there MB, it doesn't really specify which one on there site, just the general discriptions like "Daw Core/Penryn P35 chipset DDR2 1066" etc.

  4. Hi, The P5B series is good for audio and proven running on the the 965 chipset. The P35 is the new chipset and is working very well and will support the new intel CPUs so a bit of future proofing (I know, no such thing!)

    What audio interface are you going to be using.
