Help choosing new motherboard

Hey guys, im building a new rig but need advice on a good motherboard. I am going with either the core i5 or core 2 quad cpu (leaning towards core i5) and will be using it for gaming, work, playin some tunes etc. I probably wont be overclocking and i would be prefer a board that uses crossfire/sli. I would also prefer ddr3 just for future proofing purposes. Any input is greatly appreciated.

  1. The leading contenders would be the ASUS P7P55D PRO or GIGABYTE GA-P55-UD4P or ASRock P55 Extreme
    Also in the mix are GIGABYTE GA-P55M-UD4 (it's a micro-ATX sized board) and Foxconn Inferno Katana or BIOSTAR T5 XE CFX.

    Any of the first 3 will be an exellent choice.
    ASRock P55 Extreme
  2. I second the Gigabyte P55-UD4P
  3. good job leaning towards i5..

    dont ever get below i5 750 at this point because i5 750> all processors before and all amd processors.

    i agree with others the Gigabyte P55-UD4P is a good one for the price.
  4. Thanks for the help guys. I think i will go with the gigabyte p55-ud4p
