Asus p5kpl-am or p5qpl-am need urgent suggestions


#1

I have to purchase a new board for my q9400, right now i can not afford an expensive board. so i am purchasing. the above mentioned board I found cheepest from asus family. the only difference between the two is the chipset p5kpl am is with g31 chipset and the other is g41, both have 2 slots for ram. as 4gb ram is not available in market so practically both can support 4 GB maximum. I already have 2GB ddr2 ram so cannot buy a ddr3 board. I have a 8600GT so the built in GPU doesn't make any difference. the price for both is mentioned below:

p5kpl-am_________ 4500 RS http://www.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=xs6iinKxu0y5agcg

p5qpl-am_________5500 Rs http://www.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=08c0CULpvP1ZM9kT

now suggest me quickly which should i buy or do i have any other option as I am buying asus for the first time. I have to purchase board tomorrow. so please reply me as urgent as possible.

buy QPL coz it is latest and will give u better support regarding drivers as KPL is old now.

KPL is good as well but G31 is old. G41 is better.

the advantage of using g41 is having support for 8 GB ram, but this board has only 2 slots so practically i can not use more then 4 GB. so i think there is no other major difference between two chipset. so i have bought a KPL-AM :D
