More about better mobo
  1. I'm no expert on motherboards, so take this with a grain of salt, but I'd probably go with the P6X58D-E. I don't think it differs much from the Premium, and it overclocks well. I was looking at some reviews a while back for a friend, and it seems the main differences are the lack of an extra ethernet port, an on-board reset button, and a cooling pipe... which doesn't sound worth it to me.

    no there is an other big difference between these 2 mobos is that p6x58d-e can't support Intel Turbo Boost Technology.....
    and
    dude they have mentioned that this board P6X58D-E supports 3 wy sli.....but they didn't mentioned about crossfire....
    :-(
    is this mobo supports crossfire and crossfirex or 3 way crossfire?
  3. You may want to check a little more:

    P6X58D-E supports turbo and crossfire.
  4. Why not check out the Tom's recommended pick

    The GA-X58A-UD3R is solid with 2 more sata ports than Asus.
    One step higher is UD5, which has dual Ethernet and fancier power circuitry.
    UD3R is cheaper, more features than Asus.
  5. thanks dude...i'll do this
  6. I second the UD3R same board I have and has more options than you need..lol sata 3 usb 3 xfire/sli support 4 x16 slots ( not all run at x16 speeds) tons of options in bios for overclock ( if you plan to do so) and a cmos reset button on the backplate so you don't have to open the case every time while oc'ing
  7. asus rampage3 extrem ...
    finally i have selected a mobo ....i think it'll secure 2 or 3 years...

    .
