Solved "Best" i7 333 mobo Tags: Motherboards Intel i7 Graphics Cards Last response: July 28, 2010 10:41 AM in Motherboards Share 3nn10 July 26, 2010 11:26:41 AM 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. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... If anyone has any better ideas I am all ears. Thanks for the help!!! (also anyone with strong feelings/ideas about 480 vs 5970, let me know!)

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. 3nn10 July 27, 2010 4:30:56 AM Yea, but the premium has so many amazing reviews I'd rather just spend the extra $50. Anyone know how the FTW3 compares ? Related resources I7 920 3.33 Ghz thermal status - Forum 2.8 Quad vs. 3.33 Dual.

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