Currently looking to purchase a mobo but i've hit a snag on which chipset to go with. From personal use and reading around the P35 mobo's seem more stable and perform better. The P35 mobo i am looking to get is the Asus P5K Premium. But then again there is the Asus P5E or the Maximus Formula mobo that is built on a X38 chipset. Big difference between the two is that the X38 chipset supports PCI x 16 2.0 where the P35's don't. Price wise these boards differ i'd say between $40 bucks ($220 to $260) With the release of the Nvidia 8800GT it seems that newer vid cards are now being released with PCI x16 2.0 support. My gut tells me to go with X38 because it's built around currently evolving technology. But i hear it also is not as great as a performer as the P35 chipset which are very stable. And yes i'm aware a updated chipset to the X38, the X48, will be released but i am purchasing my mobo this year and not in '08. At this point i am at a minor stand still. Should i go with stability (P35) or the future (X38)?
