    Hi,
    I need help with choosing a motherboard for a new Q6600 computer. I found out that a GigaP35 board is a good option but I have no idea which one or the differences between them.
    Here is the list I have available to me (AUS prices):

    Gigabyte P35-S3L
    125
    Gigabyte P35-DS3
    157
    Gigabyte P35-DS3R
    177
    Gigabyte P35C-DS3R (DDR2+DDR3)
    187
    Gigabyte P35-DS3P(Pro)
    197
    Gigabyte P35-DS4
    243
    Gigabyte P35-DQ6
    279

    I was going towards a DS3 board but I don't know which is the best option or the features between them, I do know for $20 more the DS3R has a ICH9R Chipset isntead of INCH9 on the DS3, but what does that mean?
    What do I do?
    or is there another brand/model i should be looking at.

    Thanks a lot.
