EVGA 141-BL-E757-TR vs EVGA E758-A1

I'm deciding on which motherboard to get..

The EVGA E758-A1, has 2 x (16x) and 1 (8x), while the EVGA 141-BL-E757-TR has 1 (16x) 2 (8x) and 1 (4x)
PCI slots..

And the EVGA 141-BL-E757-TR, when in sli with 2 dual slot cards, I won't have any pci slots or anything..
So I am leaning toward the EVGA E758-A1..

One thing I have noticed about the E758-A1 is that the Memory standard is noted as: DDR 1660/1333..

What does that mean? Does that mean I can use 1600 or 1333?

I am going to be overclocking my Intel i7 920 to 4Ghz with liquid cooling..
And I will prolly overclock the ram aswell.


Which board should I get and why?

I am not an extreme gamer, I doubt I will ever sli..
But If I ever do play a game, where I need a good card, which does happen sometimes like GTA IV for example.. or FSX, I wanna be able to have the power to do it.

I am also going to use my PC for Music Production so I will be sticking an M Audio sound card in one of the PCI Slots..

I multi task alot aswell, So I might have 2 games running at once (Online games, SO I can have 2 chars logged in at once don't ask why.) And I might wanna minimize them and use photoshop abit, hey maybe I could even open up 3d Studio max while i'm at it xD :bounce:

  1. Get the The EVGA E758-A1 and once you register it your will have Lifetime Warranty for the board. Also since you mention that you will WC, I would suggest you get this Northbridge/Southbridge water block. Since the Northbridge on EVGA is Passive cooling runs hot.
