    Question Recomend Best Gigabyte Mobo for Q9550 chip?

    I'm going to start a new build, Intel Quad Core 9550 to run Vista 64bit OS. I will most likely use Corsair 4gb DDR3 memory, but MIGHT look at 8GB of DDR2 memory, undecided on that. (My last build for a Dual Core 8500 I used a Gigabyte GA-EP35C-DS3R and liked it alot.) Crossfire is an option to consider also.

    Anyone want to recommend the best Gigabyte board for me?

    Thanks in advance.
    First Build - Desktop :
    Gigabyte E35P-DS3R | Core 2 Duo Wolfdale E8500 3.18ghz | Corsair Dominator DHX 4GB (2x2gb) DDR2 1066 |
    EVGA 8800 GT 512mb | WD 640gb HDD | 2x Samsung DVD-RW | 2x Dell SP2009 monitor |
    Antec 900 w/Antec Tru-Power Trio 550 |Windows XP Pro

    Last Build - HTPC:
    Gigabyte E45P-UD3P | Core 2 Quad Yorkfield 9550 2.83ghz | Corsair Dominator DHX 8GB (4x2gb) DDR2 1066 |
    EVGA 9800 GTX 512mb | WD 750gb & 640gb & Seagate 320gb HDD | Samsung DVD-RW | Sony Blu-Ray BDU-X10SR |
    Antec 1200 w/Antec Neopower 650 | Vista Ultimate 64bit

    I would stick to P35, or X38/48 (Better for Crossfire) If you are not heavily into tweaking your BIOS or know much about BIOS's in general as the P45 has a FULL BIOS
