What's a good 1366 Mobo?

Hey everyone, I've been slowly upgrading my PC and tomshardware has always been an excellent site for information so I thought I'd ask your advice on what mobo to get.

I'm deciding between ASUS P6X58D Premium LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard or EVGA 141-BL-E757-TR LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX X58 SLI LE Intel Motherboard. I also looked at the Asus extreme rampage ii but I'm not a major OCer so I doubt i would fully maximize its potential.

I just need a mobo that has good PCI placement so I can fit my gts 250, sound card, and wireless network card without having any spacing issues.

Anyone recommend a good 1366 motherboard? Can't wait to use my i7 920 CPU.

Thanks for your time

More about what good 1366 mobo
  1. Asus and EVGA are impressive brands and that two mobos are excellents.
    Anyway, I would buy the Asus one. That's because is newer (it has USB3.0 and SATA-600 no-native support) and it has more good features.
  2. Yea I was kinda leaning on the Asus P6X, but people were saying the PCI express slots were cramped, and you couldn't really use SLI or even just one vid card and still put your sound card in it. I'm hoping someone with experience on this asus mobo would shed some insight.
  3. finally bought the asus p6x instead. PCI 16 slots really are cramped, you could fit in 2 sli video cards.. barely
  4. You only want install a GPU? don't waste your money in a mobo like this, that mobo is very good but for high-end rigs, with 58xx series or 5970, but with a GTS250 you can buy a less expensive mobo.
  5. i already got it installed. why would you say a gts 250 is a waste? i was thinking of getting another gts 250 and sli it but i doubt 2 can even fit in this mobo
  6. I say for the GPU, the GTS250 is around $ 128.99 on the egg. And you can byt a 5770 for $ 169.99 that is a better GPU.
