I was just trying to search for an affordable board. I will mainly use it normal use, gaming etc. no video editing. Since it's my first build, I'm not planning on doing OC until I get some more experience. I have basically narrowed it down to the
EVGA p55 LE http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813188054
Gigabyte p55-UD3 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128412&cm_re=gigabyte_ud3-_-13-128-412-_-Product
Seems like the UD3 is a little better because of the USB 3.0 feature. Is there another $130 board that you would recommend over these 2?
Also, I will be running a 5850. Will I run into any clearance issues with anything behind the pci 2.0 slot? I see on some boards that usually where the logo is, the piece is especially elevated and I was just worried that a 9.5" long card would not be able to fit.
