Does any particular brand of mobo work better for an i7-860 vs an i5-750 or would there be no difference?

No difference. But there's an article on sli and p55 boards about the lack of usable pci slots with some board designs, but I don't remember the website.

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=N82E168...

Gigabyte p55-UD3 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

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.

Meh, I would not buy a board based on SATA 3.0, but if you absolutely need that freature then I would say go ahead with the UD3.

So you recommend the evga one?

It might block the PCI-E x1 slot that is under the first x16 slot, but that is about it...
