The maximus II is a micro-ATX, that IMO isn't good for a good rig. So, I would get the rampage.
P.D. The LGA 775 is a old socket, if you want a good rig, try to go with a i3 or better or AMD AM3

in that case do u think i should go for the crosshair III formula?
Feb 4, 2010, 1:37 PM
Yea, the Crosshair III is a very good mobo, but remember that is for AMD processors. Other options are the MSI 790FX-GD70 or ASUS M4A79 Deluxe.

hmmmm....is there anything higher than the 965 BE?
Feb 4, 2010, 4:05 PM
None, the 965 is the top of the AMD, can't defeat the i7 and sometimes lose with the i5, but can defeat all series of C2Q except the C2Q Extreame.
