Quad Core Motherboard Picks

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to build a quad core (Q6600-based) system. I have the CPU, 2 x 2 GB RAM and OS X tested video card. What are the best motherboards that work the most smoothly and have a reasonable price? What are you using?


Several key questions:


1) Does the audio work? All 7.1 channels via analog?


2) Gigabit ethernet? (Not critical.)


3) Firewire? (Not critical.)


4) Support for >4 GB of RAM? (Intel 965, 975, nForce chipsets usually)


5) Special hassles during install or with OS X compatibility? What doesn't work?
