    Asus P5K-E. Or anything in that range above it (i.e. P5K Premium...) The P35
    NB has proved to be a reliable chip. Coupled with the ICH9R you have what's
    pretty much the best combo at a good price.

    I've built a few machines around these boards now using quad and dual core
    CPUs and am very impressed at features, stability and overclockability. I
    personally have a P5K-E WiFi/AP that currently has an E4500 @ 3.3GHz in it,
    (413MHz [1653] FSB) just waiting for the 45nm parts to come down in price.

    I still haven't decided whether to go dual or quad. It seems that, for most
    things, dual is more overclockable, meaning faster, more snappy response in
    Windows. The only reason I'm intending to upgrade my E4500 at some stage is
    for more L2 and more speed (although it doesn't break a sweat with anything
    I throw at it at the moment).

    Good luck with whatever you decide.
