X38 DDR2 - Which one

Recommended Posts

Surfs up on Asus Maximus Formula SE X38 &

 

but

Abit IX38 QuadGT

is due out next week.

 

Am discounting the dfi offering, expecting it as usual some time after the rest.:)

 

Last 2 boards have been Asus, commando , which is also ROG:eek: (5/10) & p5k dlxe (9/10) I do feel that quality & support are a bit of a lottery with asus, but as usual, the board looks good.

 

I'm unsure which to get, has anyone else got plans, ideas, or are you holding out till penryn & ddr3

 

cheers :D

I would be drawn more to the Gigabyte X38 DQ6 myself, they don't seem to be far off the mark with their latest run of boards. I never have had much luck with ASUS although they all have their downfalls.the X38 was just a little bit on the new side for me to risk it so I just opted for the P35 with a quad core instead. The Abit looks to be a nice contender too. I'd need to see some real world benchmarks/performance increases and even then the price is a little steep for me, $300 this side of the pond,I can only imagine what they are back in the UK.

 

PS. The ASUS does look sweet though.

I'll be holding off for the DFI option - probably to my dismay. Man $300 or so is a lot of money to spend on a motherboard. I remember the day when I cringed at spending $140 :(

Yes fair point re gigabyte the DQ6 range, it has been very successsful, have read that that's the main reason that gigabyte were 1st to market by about a week with the x38.

The Asus is way overpriced for what it is. I would go with the Gigabyte. My friend is getting his tomorrow, so I'll update once it's been tested and what not.
