Hi Friends,

I never play games. Just need a good motherboard for robust applications like 3d ( maya ) 2d ( photoshop) and other video editing works.

Any other advice like which PSU would be very helpful

Thanks

BE SURE TO GET THE UD5 REV 1!!

It is only a few dollars more and it has 2 USB 3.0 and 2 SATA 6Gbs ports native.

Newegg's data is a little bit messed up here but this is the REV 1 board.

Two reasons - the 5 has better cooling, more ports, AND Newegg doesn't even have the new 3 yet.

AND I still will probably buy the ASUS board as it has even better cooling, a bit better - less cluttered - layout (with less ports unfortunately) but it has a much better warranty - 3 years verses 1.

Cooling Equals Longevity.

The less heat your chips have to suffer the longer they will live.

I'm not looking to hugely overclock my system but I want it to be bulletproof. This means all of the hot parts get lots of airflow over them. I'm not going to try to run 5 miles of liquid cooling lines as I don't think it is necessary but I want this upgrade to last for 3 or 4 years before any MAJOR mods (maybe a GPU in a year or two).

Core i-7 920
LGA1366 m/b (ASUS or Gigabyte)
6 Gb G-skill 1600 DDR3 Ram
MSI 250GTS 512 GPU (3 pipe cooler version)
Arctic Cooler Freezer 7 Pro
Full Tower case (ANTEC or THERMALTAKE - it's 6 years old so I don't remember).
OCZ Gamextreme 700W psu
640Gb Western Digital Caviar Black HD
Liteon DVD Rom
Samsung DVD RW
ACER AL2223W 22" Monitor
Windows XP SP3 (for now).
