Of the two motherboards you listed, I'd say eVGA.

My personal choice, however, is Gigabyte.

Well the reason it is between those two motherboards, is because I am buying it from BestBuy. (I won a $100 gift card to the store) And those are the only two motherboards they carry that are less than $250 and are the 1366 socket.

Raid zero ssd. The new Fermi graphics card when it is released. i7-920 cpu, Cocage true spirit heatsink, 2x2gb Corsair dual channel 1600mhz ram. (I would like to add up to 8gb)

If I went with the MSI board I would probably do Xfire with the 5850

I would get the EGVA, support the 1600MHz that you want by default.

Can i suggest to you a 3x2GB kit? 6GB for tri-channel is a good option with your mobo and processor.

Well I got the corsair 4gig ddr3 1600mgz for $50 ... that's why I ended up with that.

Maybe is a good deal for a 4GB kit and if your mobo and processor don't support the tri-channel, but with the i7-920 and the EVGA mobo IMO isn't a good deal.

Well I returned the MSI x58 pro - e. Instead bought a Asus p6t, kinda a cliche motherboard to get. But it scored well on one of Tom'sHardware motherboard round ups.
