Hello! well i'm on the last leg of building my system, already ordered my case and accessories, heres my build..

...using mainly for gaming, my original budget was $1000 but i figured hey, why not, it's been a while since I had a great system so I guess this is what I'm getting now, pulling the trigger this friday. Anyways, I am really torn on my mobo. Toms recommended the Gigabyte and I have heard nothing but great things, but the P6X58D-E seems like a better chance to not get...well...a doa mobo or one with funny noise issues if you know what i mean. And then for the same price i saw the Rampage III Gene getting great reviews....

So money being no object between these three boards, which do you recommend more for convenience, stability, and overall quality?

Also, I will probably OC a little, but i dont think any of these boards will be a problem.

Hmmm I think I'll just rock the P6X58D-E, I'm not quite sure I'm ready to get a mATX board, even though the color scheme is much cooler. I've got 36 hours before I order to change my mind again though...
