"Best" i7 333 mobo

I am building a new computer, mainly for gaming, and I'm hoping to future proof it pretty well. I will be initially throwing in a 480 or 5970 for sli/xfire down the line (so max 2 graphics cards) Planning on the i7 930 CPU. Also would like a mobo where I could use my soundcard along with the two graphics cards.
These are what I'm looking at so far. I hear that EVGA is coming out with two new 333 boards, is that true?
asus, gigabyte, asus, evga are linked here.

More about best mobo
  1. I would go with the ASUS P6X58D-E over the boards listed. It provides similar OCing ability as the boards above and has an acceptable layout for use of a sound card, all at a lower cost.
  2. Yea, but the premium has so many amazing reviews I'd rather just spend the extra $50. Anyone know how the FTW3 compares ?
  3. ^ It just has more reviews I reckon, a few more better ones I suppose but really not worth the extra $50 in my opinion, but your money is your money.

    The EVGA X58 FTW3 is really just like any other X58 333 board.

    if you have enough budget for mobo then just get Asus rampage 3 extreme...otherwise p6x58d-e is good mobo at less price...
