STABLE i7 mobo

Looking for a stable, non-gamer (no OC) board $240 max.

Waited for sales on parts I have:

i7-930, OCZ DDR3 PC3 12800 & GeForce GT240 512mb

Only need board.

Use for research, writing and financial

Son says ASUS, I'm thinking Intel because the most stable system I ever put together was an Intel 733

Haven't put one together in almost 5 years and haven't really kept up too much on tech.

Thanks

  2. That's good too,but since the OP doesn't want to OC,i recommended the P6T-SE.(Because P6X58D series usually OC better than older P6T series.)
  3. Yeah I suppose but it's good to have SATA III and USB 3.0. ;)
  4. Yes you are right,my vote turns to P6X58D-E too(however if you don't care about USB 3.0 either,then stick with P6T-SE)

  6. Maziar & Lmeow,

    Thank you both for your suggestions!

    I compared the P6X58D-E point by point with several other boards and although I almost bought a P6T at Microcenter for $200, I have decided to go with the P6X58D-E based partially on your recommendations. If I can't find it on sale or with a rebate in a week or so I'll go ahead an get it for $240 at Newegg if they still have it at that price.

    Microcenter also had 6-8 P6T's that had been returned by customers and marked down to $183! I have been happy with returned items I bought at Microcenter in the past, but that many P6T's on the return shelf makes you wonder...

    Thank you for your time!
