Guys,

What the differences between the P and G series chipset? Is it only the PCI-E 1.1(P series) and PCI-E 2.0(G series). To me both the chipset is almost identical. I duno which one to choose.

Need to buy a new pc to replace my old one. I would be using the pc mostly for converting video, couple of games and watching movies.

The spec for upcoming rig :
Proc: Q6600
Mobo: Asus P5E VM HDMI(G35) or ASUS P5K-SE(P35)
Memory: 2gig DDR667 Kingston or mushkin
HDD: Seagate 250gig 7200.11 16MB SATA 3.0
PSU: Gigabyte Odin pro 550w
VGA: 8800GS or 8800GT 256
Samsung 226BW

Advise pls~

Thanks

The P35 chipset is the "mid-range" chipset from Intel that will support the upcoming Penryn processors. The G31/G33/G35 chipsets are similar except that they have integrated video using Intel's integrated video.

The biggest difference between Intel's G series chipsets and P series chipsets is as DSL Dilbert said, that the G series has oboard video and the P series doesn't. My guess would be that the G stands for "Graphics". If your getting a seperate videocard then you can go either way, as you can always disable the onboard video if your using a seperate videocard. The majority of people would do just fine with onboard video. The only time that you would need a seperate videocard is if you play games or do intensive 3D work in some sort of 3D design program. In that case you absolutely need a seperate videocard and a good one.
