the Classified is an awesome board. i had one and they don't skimp on quality and have the best support of all listed if things go wrong. the little more money is worth the peace of mind to me.

The only startling aspect is..

EVGA is a small company compared to ASUS and Gigabyte..


Gigabyte is my motherboard of choice as i have never had one fail.

I feel they are made just that little bit better than Asus, but thats my opinion.

I have a EVGA board with a 680i chipset, dont get me wrong its all good but the technical help on Gigabyte gives us quicker bios updates and a better support website.

I also like gigabyte a lot. i have the EX58A-UD7 and i love it. it is a great board. It also has a watercooling block already on the chipsets so if you are planning to watercool then its a bonus for you. it also has usb 3.0, sata 6gb/s. and its quad sli/xfire ready. Gigabyte makes some great boards.

Among the 3 my pick is for ASUS P6X58D Premium. Has true SATA III and USB 3.0.
GIGABYTE GA-EX58-UD4P is out of stock at Newegg.

It’s hard to say I like both the evga and the asus. Asus always has very good board but I like evga too. Over all the asus has some of the newer features like usb 3.0 and sata 6gb/s so I would go with that one unless you needed the extra pci x16 slot on the evga. If you are going for looks and you don’t care about the usb 3.0 and sata 6gb/s, go with the evga because it looks amazing.

Personally I may have gone with the evga because it looks so good but functionally asus wins.
