Well that's different. That board is pretty weak in the power section and likely won't go too far for overclocking even the ud3lr wasn't great but this one is worse

Maybe, it's a pretty cheap board. It will depend on the power section. You'll have to keep it cool with an extra fan. If you haven't bought it yet I would look for something a bit better

I woulnt bought it yet. So, I have two option to choose between GA-P45T-ES3G and GA-EP45T-UD3LR, what to choose? To overlock, and to achieve best experience in games.

GA-EP45T extreme. ASUS rampage Extreme. Those are a couple of the best and still expensive.
The ud3rl is better but still not great. I would pick it over the other.

I think I will stay on p45. I know its not best, but for lga775, and my budget, I think I will not find better than GA-EP45T-UD3LR. So I will buy it, it cost about 100dollars.

The P45 chipset is an outstanding chipset for overclocking the Q9650. I can't speak to that specific Gigabyte board's prowess in overclocking, but the Asus P5Q Pro turbo I used with my Q9650 allowed me to reach a rock-solid 24/7 speed of 4250Mhz.

But that board you specified is ddr2, I need ddr3 memory. So ep45t is good choice to overclock? Need more opinions with q9650 and p45 chipset.
