Will the P5K3 Deluxe work with the "Best DIY5 Core Duo&
on Sep 27, 2008 at 1:55:31 am

I'm trying to build the "Best DIY5 Core 2 Duo and I can't get the Asus P5W DH Deluxe mobo from Mwave. Will the Asus P5K3 Deluxe work just as well?

If not which mobo will work in place of the P5W DH mobo?

I'm using Mwave because I can pick the parts that are recommended for the "Best DIY5 Core 2 Duo" and they'll put it together for me.

Thanks for any advice,

Wes

They are pretty much the same motherboard. But the P5K3 supports 1333 bus and uses DDR3 (keep in mind that eventually all DYI will become outdate), tha is faster and more expensive than DDR2.

Th E8400 is a good CPU choice.

Chipocludo,

Thanks for the quick response. Let me pass another motherboard by you for your opinion. How will the Asus P5Q-E work with the DYI setup?

Hi again

Haven't seen this board before but I liked the lay out.

Overall is a good board, ans supports the newest PCIe graphic cards and DDR2 modules. Is a very good choice too IMO.

Asus has the best desktop boards, you can never get wrong buying one. I have a P5K-E, and I'm impressed how well it works and how easy was the setup. I use it for gaming and after effects.
