I am looking for an upgrade from the Core 2 Duo E6750 to the i7 but my major concern is selecting the right motherboard.
Intel Core 2 Duo E6750
Intel DP45SG motherboard
Kingston 2GB DDR3-1333
CM 460W Xtreme PSU
XFX ATI 5770 PCX GFX Card
4xSata II HDD's
1xSata DVD-RW Drive
I am looking at the Intel Core I7 930
RAM: Corsair Dominator 3x2GB Tri-Kit or the XMS3 3x2GB Tri-Kit
Asus P6T Deluxe V2
Asus Rampage II Extreme
I don't intend to OC, and need a stable system. The confusion b/w Intel and Asus is that the Intel one has 4xDDR3 slots and the Asus one's have 6x. I would want advise which is the best way to go. I also don't intend to CFX/SLI anytime soon. Would be using 5-6HDDs (if possible) and a dvd rw on it, using the same gfx 5770. Also, I couldn't really get the difference between rampage 2 extreme and the deluxe v2. The Intel board is just a choice due to the fact that I've never used any board other than intel and they seem rock solid in stability for me, so I dont know how efficient and solid the other brands are.
Would appreciate any help
(P.S: Gigabyte boards are not available here so I won't be able to get my hands on them, just got choices between Asus, Intel, EVGA which are available here in the market as for now)
