I am buying a new PC and I have decided for every component except for the motherboard.
I will go with
a i5-750 CPU,
4gb 1600mhz of RAM,
Gigabyte 5770 HD video card,
Scythe Mugen 2 Rev. B CPU cooler,
Centurion 690 II Advanced case,
Gigabyte 720 Superb power supply,
WD Black Caviar 1Tb hard drive
and a Nec Labelflash optical unit.

I have been searching for a good MB for a while now. I almost decided to buy the Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD4 motherboard, but came across this topic: http://www.overclockers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=623...

Now I came across the question do I really need USB 3.0 and SATA 3. I mean when are we going to use them like we use the USB 2.0 and SATA 2 today?

Which boards are better?
ASUS, Gigabyte or MSI.

I am kinda looking at this MB, but I am not sure...
Here is the link: http://www.guru3d.com/article/msi-p55-gd80-review-test/

I am kinda a gamer soo I am almsot 100% sure that I will buy another 5770 HD(I have one since Christmas)

You can also give me a link to a good motherboard, but its has to cost no higher than 190 euros.

That gygabyte mobo is a good option. Anyway I would go for an ASUS P7P55D-E PRO:

Here you have some reviews:

I recommend you to buy a mobo with onboard SATAIII and USB3.0. Anyway you always can add a USB3.0/SATAIII PCIe card when you need it.

The best mobo brands are ASUS, EVGA and Gigabyte. INTEL, MSI and DFI make good products too.

I've got a P7P55D-E and can tell you for certain that there is no high pitched noise, not sure where you got that idea from...

EDIT:
Soo the ASUS doesnt have any problems with SATA 3 and USB 3.0 like the gigabyte one.

Ok. It's strange. Anyway, now you know how to resolve the problem if it happens: turn off C-State technology.
Don't worry. It's an amazing mobo.

If I use 2 HD 5770s with that mobo, it will run at x8 x8 am I right?
But it isnt a big difference than x16 x16 I read somewhere. Were they right?

On those graphics cards you wont notice any difference.

Does the motherboard have any bad things?
How long does it take to boot up?
