ASUS P5KC vs MSI P35 Platinum Combo

Posted on Tuesday, March 18 2008 @ 06:38:10 CET by

ExtremeTech compared the Asus P5KC and MSI P35 Platinum Combo motherboards, both boards cost around $150 and offer support for both DDR2 and DDR3 memory.
Early DDR3 adopters are still in hiding from the sticker shock (and poor timings) leveraged upon them by the emerging memory standard. Today's system builders, however, wish to be ready for anything in terms of upgradability. One possible solution is to build with a dual-memory motherboard.

Today we examine two such boards, one from ASUS (which we used in our Bang for the Buck Build It system) and one from MSI. Both offer a range of compelling features, including, of course, a future-proof path to DDR3 for folks whose wallets currently wish to stick with DDR2 memory.
Check it out over here. The Asus motherboard received a 9/10 and the reviewer says it's a great motherboard to help transition between DDR2 and DDR3. The MSI board only received a 7 because of potential compatibility issues with some DDR3 memory modules.
