I am wondering which one is the best for the price according to my needs? I have no idea :heink: 
The Asus P6x58D Premium
GA-X58A-UD3R(rev. 1.0)
GA-X58A-UD7(rev. 1.0)

They all seem to have the same features, but the UD3R is cheaper.
I might crossfirex the 5970 later.

I am willing to pay for any of them.
I will be using it for hardcore gaming, and overclocking.
I will be using it with:
Intel i7 920.
Radeon HD 5970 graphics card
6gb 1600mhz cl7 ram.
optical drive
and 950W psu.

Thanks in advance :D

for the high end graphics card you are using i suggest u go with the gigabyte ud7 or asus P6X58D Premium...

i'd prefer an asus board over the gigabyte... but its just personal preference...

P6X58D Premium... I own one, it's very user friendly and overclocks like a champ... You would never go wrong with asus... Oh! I also have the EVGA X58 SLI LE & GA-X58-UD3R, just so you know... I'm so not being bias, just talking from experience...

The UD3r is a very high quality 1366 motherboard that has everything you need at a great price. You can spend another $100-150 for the other boards, but imho the extra money buys you very little more.

Gigabyte seems have the edge over Asus these days in the value equation, and the quality of their mobo components is superior at each price point.

Btw, if you or someone you know lives near a Microcenter you can get the 920 for $199. So $409 gets you a UD3r/920, awesome. Why would anyone go 1156?

Have fun.
