Is the EVGA X58 FTW3 the Best MOBO in its Price Range?

What is the best motherboard for my situation. I am building a new computer, the parts I plan on using are listed below.

1000w BFG Quad Rail Power Supply

Intel Core i7-930 2.8ghz

6gb (3 x 2gb) of undecided 2000mhz memory

2 x Galaxy GTX 470 Flip Fan design

CoolerMaster HAF 932 Full Tower

Corsair H50 CPU Cooler

OCZ Vertex 2 50gb Solid State Drive


I plan on overclocking my CPU to about 4.0ghz - 4.2ghz and wouldn't mind overclocking my 470's a bit either. Besides the H50 cooler, I'm not going water cooling. USB 3.0 and Sata 3 are nice benefits, but I really don't mind not having them.

I'm looking for the best Motherboard for my parts, looking to spend about $250 but don't mind spending a little more if it's worth it.

  1. I vote for the ASUS P6X58D-E...
  2. I am using the eVGA X58 3-way SLI and no problems so far!

    System configuration:
    EVGA X58 3-way SLI
    Intel core i7 920 2.66 @ 4.2ghz + Cooler Master V8 cpu cooler
    6GB ddr3 OCZ 1600mhz
    3x EVGA GTX260 core 216 running in 3-way SLI
    2x WD velociraptor 300rpm + 1TB 7200rpm
    Corsair THX850w psu
  3. I'm looking at the new EVGA X58 FTW3 Motherboard

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813188065&Tpk=ftw3

    Does this seem like the right choice for me?
  4. I'm running an EVGA X58 board as well, like the previous poster (with just SLI GTX 260 Core 216's) and the new EVGA X58 FTW3 looks like a great board. I think EVGA has great SLI support and features. However at that price range, I still think you be better off with the ASUS P6X58D-E board for $30 or so less. It is just as nice of a board IMO.
