hi everybody !! :D 
decided to buy a core i5 750 and a suitable motherboard(its a new build and need to decide on the rest of the components)...

narrowed down the options to gigabyte P55-UD4P and asus P7P55D..
Since they price diff is about $20 it doesn't matter much to me...

this is basically going to be a htpc which will double as a gaming rig to play at full hd resolutions...

so which one should i pick up ??

and hey forgot to mention... i'm going to buy later in december this year.. sometime during christmas... so if any new boards are expected i don't mind waiting..

the only future board would be a board with dual x16 pci slots since most lower scale boards have one x16 and one x4 and the current higher end boards like the pro has one x16 and one x8 pci slots

i have this wonderful offer of an core i7 920 + DX58SO for $480 in a nearby retail shop...

is it ok to go with this considering the fact that the bundled intel board is not a gr8 one compared to others in the x58 league ??

or should i settle for the core i5 + asus pro ?? that is being offered at $400
