I initially wanted to pick an ASrock X58 Extreme as a budget motherboard for my i7 build but I heard that it has problems with memory (Not running Triple Channel Kit properly as well as a slew of other bugs) is this still the case? If it is what other Mobo would you recommend in the price range of 200-275 CAD (or simply as a suggestion over the ASrock).
In the conclusion it states "Anyone more interested in performance leadership than top overclocking might instead choose the Gigabyte X58-UD3R, its higher-spec eight-phase voltage regulator and two ounce copper PCB providing cooler VRM operation rather than an overclocking crown. Equally priced to the X58 Pro-E but with slightly less room for memory and expansion cards, its lower operating temperatures might make it a more reliable choice in high-stress environments."
Thanks you very much to both of you. The P6T SE lacks SLI and I do not think 24Gb of RAM will be needed until I get my future PC. The P6T V2, though it has SLI, is 340$ so I will therefore opt for Gigabyte's GA-EX58-UD3R (16Gb max) at 210$.
Sorry, I didn't fully explain. That card I'm asking about is for my current Dell Dimension C521, so I can play some games until I get myself my new PC. This PC will go to my brother afterwards and I wouldn't want him to be unable play anything because the GPU is intergrated.
You might run your system through on the power calculator to see if there might be more room. The lite version is free but I strongly suggest paying the few dollars for a subscription to the Pro model that gives the amps on each circuit and compare that with what should be on a label on the PSU.
