P55 mobo choices (for crossfire)

hello everyone!

i have my eye on a few p55 motherboards capable of crossfire, and these are my options:

msi p55-gd65 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130239

msi p55-gd80 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130238

and this new asus http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131601

or maybe just go with 1366, its almost the same price now since newer stuff came out?

if i do 1366, im eyeballing these two boards: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Productcompare.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=50001315%2040000280%201071840133%201388027177&Description=x58&bop=And&ActiveSearchResult=True&CompareItemList=N82E16813131386,N82E16813131359

any advice is great!!

  1. I would go with the ASUS board, if you are getting the i5 750.

    I would make the jump to the i7 920 and pickup the P6T (Crossfire/SLI vs just Crossfire), if you are getting the i7 860.
  2. yeah but i was looking, and the 1366 mobos for what im lookin for are same price, and so are the processor for the price point. 1366 it is!
  3. I love the Sabertooth. Everything about it. It's one of very few P55 boards that give you great spacing for sli/crossfire. It is a little pricey, but you're looking at heavy duty build quality, top shelf cooling, and of course the pci-e layout.

    For the 1366, you might consider the Asus P6T Deluxe V2

    It also offers great spacing for crossfire/sli. Much better nb/sb/mosfet cooling, 16+2 voltage (vs 6+2 of P6T and P6T SE), and an additional ethernet. It runs about 50 dollars more, but at the end of the day the extra chipset cooling alone makes it worthwhile imo.
