Alright so I'm currently building an i7 system, and as i always i have a decision to make on which motherboard would fulfill my needs better.

It's between the EVGA x58 Sli motherboard : http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item...

and the Asus P6T deluxe v2 : http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item...

I'm looking for the motherboard that is better for overclocking and just better in general also. BTW if theres any other motherboards out there for under 350$ canadian that i should consider let me know( yea i know those two boards are around 410$ canadian, but im getting them from another site, i just like the way TD presents their items :p ) . I'm currently leaning on the EVGA boards side because of the customer care and service, but i would like to not even have to communicate CS. On feature side the Asus seams better so I'm really lost on what to do, hope you guys can shine some light on my situation

I was considering getting the $300 EVGA(says 12 GB RAM, but EVGA says they will give the bios capability to goto 24 GB later).

The Asus is 280 on Newegg, and can be combo'd with lots of stuff and save another $20-25. It shouldn't be anywhere near $400 though.

There are 2 other Asus that are $350(revolution) and $370(Rampage II Extreme). I was locked in on the Asus P6T Deluxe v2, but their favorable reviews have slowed, and it seems that more and more are getting dead boards. Now, I'm mulling between the DFI, MSI, ASUS, EVGA, or Gigabyte. What I've learned from this: there will be at least a few negative reviews if the company sold enough of the product. All of them seem to have good qualities unless you get unlucky and get a dead board.

Sorry, I didn't notice the Canadian prices. Makes sense why they were so high. The more I think about it, I'm going with EVGA. Nice combo with RAM that I found too.

I'm too leary now of the Asus, even though it is one of the best. There are about 5-7 good mid range boards for i7, just tough to choose. And no one seems to be real knowledgable on all the different boards, or they don't like to share :non:
