    Default most stable???

    Hey all,
    I am building a new system and I am have a tough time picking a MoBo. I have two choices: GA-EP35-DS3L and GA-EP43-DS3L. I am just looking for input to help me choose. They are both close in price, which is a big factor, I am not going to be OC and I use my system for a bit of everything. I know there are no absolutes, but if anyone as heard or experenced more issues with one or the other I would like to hear about it. With the board I will be installing:
    E5200
    G.Skill 2x1gb 800MHz
    Antex EA650
    XP home

    I currently own an e5200 on a GA-EP35-DS3L. I must say I have no problems. It's easy to configure and works perfect.

    Hope this helps you in your choice.

    Btw. What GFX are you going to put?

    Thanks Soldier!
    I am using the card I have, a GFX 6800 256MB. Its an old card, but it has been tried and true and suits my needs. Plus, I don't have the money to spend now.

    I would take a P35 over a P43 any day, as P43 is the Budget Chipset.

    Why not P35-DS3R or DS4?
