Hey guys I won two mother boards on eBay and I couldn't get out of one of them so now I have to figure out which one I keep. One is an Asus, the other is an eVGA. They are supposed to work, but I kind of have to sell one of them and my old AM3 board to pay for some of the CPU I am going to get, so I can't test either on, but anyways, here they are.

Asus P7P55D Deluxe

eVGA 132-LF-E655-KR

I am kind of leaning towards the Asus since my AM3 board was an Asus and I always liked it, despite how fickle it was. Plus it has more features, which I may or may not need. I plan on getting the Core i7 870 since its like 230 at Micro Center.

I would recommend the ASUS P7P55D-E Pro, which is the same price on Newegg (not including the discount the Deluxe has for a MIR)

Thanks for the advice guys. I actually decided to keep the eVGA board since I don't plan on doing much overclocking this build. I do appreciate all the information.

Both are great overclockers.
EVGA have the best layout ever.
Asus has more fancy stuff.
It's up to you =D
