    How about you keep what you have and just get a x38 based chipset mobo when you can afford it. Whats your budget.

    Or is this for a entirely different system then the one if your specs?

    Abit IP35 Pro. People are skeptical towards Abit as they've had a few bad years, but with new investors backing them up, they're definitely back in the high-end league. The IP35 has very, very few issues (none that I can think of) and overclocks very well. The best part about it is that it's cheaper than it's other high-end P35 counterparts.

    X38 is a waste of money at the moment unless you need crossfire. It doesn't offer anything over the P35 that warrants it's much higher price.

    The molex connector only needs to be used when you're running a crossfire setup with two graphics cards.

    i picked out between gigabyte p35 ds4 and the abit ip35 pro. im not sure which one to get. the abit one has alot of neat things, like the switch for clearning cmos, the error display number, power and reset button on the motherboard. but the gigabyte one has better cooling, hell alot of usb ports on the io (which i need), better mobo layout and again do i have to say better cooling? xD

    Better layout? The DS4 has SATA ports spread out all over the motherboard. Atleast the Abit has angled SATA ports. As for the cooling... well, it's still a heapipe lollorama, so I'm not really sure if it's better. The Abit has a smaller heatsink (smaller area) over the PWM area as it uses digital PWM over the DS4's analog PWM. I believe the heatsinks themselves are larger on the Abit.

    Well, believe it or not, MSI's been pretty good themselves, even tho I went with a Foxconn, but both seem to be rather big companies with some rep behind them. They may be somewhat worth looking into as well.
