"After all of the tests, and the benchmark scores have been compared, can I recommend the X48 chipset? Yes and no. For anyone with a pre-3 series of motherboard, the answer is yes, but if you already own either a P35 or X38 chipset than it becomes less of a value decision. Gigabyte loads their GA-X48T-DQ6 with more system functionality and product features than anyone else, but you don't get them for free, and the price may have an impact on budget-conscious overclockers."
