My name is Arpit, I'm plannig to buy a new MOTHERBOARD for my computer.
The configuration of my PC is
Samsung DVD PowerColor PCS & HD4890 1GB GDDR5
Dell SP2309W 23-inch Monitor Corsair TW3X4G-1600C9DHX 4GB Kit
Creative Labs SBS A300 2.1
Coolermaster CM 690 PURE Black Cabinet
Logitech MX 518 Optical Mouse
Corsair Corsair TX650W Power Supply Intel Core i7 Processor i7-920
Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200.12 SATA
RED BOX - KB279 Keyboard
Coolermaster Hyper TX3 CPU cooler.
I'm looking forward to buy a X58 chipset.
I wanted to know which motherboard is better Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD7 or Asus P6X58D Premium LGA 1366....
If there are any other changes I should make please SUGGEST
both motherboards are great in features perhaps the asus one has more advantage when overcloking the cpu.
you can always wait a little more for the gpu i read that a 5830 dx 11 card is about to leave the oven for a price of 230 $ and even a bit faster than the 4890 (remember always to evolve) at least in gaming haha..
pd. remember that in order to get real boost out of the i7 you need at least 3 dimms of ram i've read you will be using 4gb why not go with 6 gb for a small price diference.
and yes why not noctua cpu cooler could be a better option.
