Newcomer here, and having a great time so far ! As you can see, I am having trouble choosing the right mobo for my new gaming rig.
ATI 5970 CrossfireX
Corsair Dominator 6GB 3x3GB
Corsair HX1000W PSU
Lite-On CD/DVDW Combo
Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB x2
1 60GB SSD (still no idea what I'm getting though )
Corsair Obsidian 800D Case
Water cooling (don't really need to get into this in detail, too much of a hassle lol)
NOTE: I will be OC'ing
I really can't decide on a motherboard. I need something that will fit both my 5970s, both @ x16 slots, preferably ATX. Not a big fan of EATX. More room for water cooling = awesome in my book. I also want something with a good layout, don't want the graphic cards to interfere with the SATA ports.
Hi newcomer and welcome to the Tom's hardware forum.
None of both, I would go for his ASUS P6X58 Premium is a better mobo, support SATA III and USB 3.0, support Quad-Crossfire and meets your requetiments for Crossfire at X16/X16. Suppor the new six-core, and all this for a less price $309.99
