Hi guys!
Im busy building up an i7. Ive got to the point where I want to purchase my mobo.
I really would like some advice on which mobo is going to be the way to go for my application and also the one that is going to be most flexable to upgrade in the long run.
I'll be using this rig as an entertainment theatre: Connected up to my HD Tv and to my amp and speakers for my music and then of course the norm, my gaming.
Im looking at running 12 gigs of ram config and triple sly.
Now! Which is the one to go for? Taking all this into consideration. - Asus Rampage 2 Extreme or Asus P6T6 Workstation.
Please, I would really like some advice. :bounce:

The p6t6 looks good; the other board is for socket 775. I recommend corsair or crucial memory. Asus should have some tested ram on their website, or email them and they may provide the link.

The Rampage II Extreme is an i7 Board designed for serious overclockers. The new version has been seen in test labs but is not out yet and can handle 4 GFX cards in SLI. If you don't wanna wait:

ASUS P6X58D Premium (6 GB SATA and USB 3 but PCI-E is 16 x 8 x 8 in tril SLI)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

ASUS P6T7 WS Supercomputer "Ultimate Gamer" (SAS and 4 x PCI-E 16)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

You could do 3 X SLI in here PLUS have a deicated PhysX card.
