    Hey guys. Wanted to make sure this was correct. Does the 750i chipset support the socket 775 Core2 Extreme QX9650? I read that it supported the 45nm procs as well as Core2 Extreme's, but I just wanted to make dead sure before buying one of these boards on ebay for my secondary PC.

    Thanks so much!

    Should work, they are both 1333 MHz FSB compliant.

    But why go for the 750i chipset? Why not Intel p45?

    It does, but at x8 link mode. Also, p45 is a better overclocker.

    p45 is xfire only, unless you want to mess with the sli patch and old driver
