Yes it's me with another stupid question -_-

It seems I can't get the P5Q PRO Turbo motherboard but I might get the P5QD Turbo motherboard; the specs are all the same only P5QD turbo has only 1 pci-e v2 connector (which is good for me because I will use only 1 GPU).

Are there other differences between the two? I might save 10euros and get it earlier.. :D

The P5Q PRO Turbo is a top tier Mobo. I have used lots of them.

i know it's good I'm just wondering is there any difference between the two other than the CrossfireX (2 PCI-E v2 slots) support? If there is none I'll get the P5QD Turbo because I only have 1 gpu :D

I can't find any good links to compare them but I know they both use the P45 chip so it will perform just as well as the P5Q.

Use the Asus compare tool > ASUSTeK Computer Inc. (the link may not work correctly) the specs aside from the PCIe x16 slots appear the same.

The biggest difference is in the motherboard chip set cooling heat sinks the pro has heat pipes and fins the the D does not. In a case with decent cooling it's not a big factor.

Send a message via MSN to linderman

for a single video card user; you will see no difference in these boards at all. Go with the one you found available, you will be satisifed. I have never been disappointed with any Asus P5Q board!
