Asus P5W or GA-P35-DS3 & Core2 Duo OR Quad

Hi everyone,


i will buy:


- Asus P5W DH Deluxe OR Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3

- Intel Core2 Duo (don't know which model) OR Intel Core2 Quad Q6600

- 4 GB of RAM


1. What do you think about the mainboard, can I be safe for official updates with this thing?

2. Would a dual-core give me nice performance for working with huge video-projects or should it be (for the future) a quad?


Thanks to everyone who will answer one of this two questions. :-)

Go with the P35-DS3, it is compatible with the efi-x chip if you decide to go down that alley later on, the asus isn't.


As for core2duo or a q6600 - that could go on forever i think. I have asked the same question and am still not sure, the e8500 is a fast cpu, can overclock crazy. I am still not sure if to go with a e8500 or a q6600. Keep in mind intel has price cuts in October for the Q6600, i don't think there are any price cuts for the e8500.
