So I'm looking for a trustworthy mobo that can support all of the above features! (ideally no more then $250)
I've read some reviews and these seem to be the two issues I see most people complain about when it comes to a specific board so I'd like to avoid them altogether.
1. That there is ample space between the video card slots for a proper SLI setup.
2. Also that there would be no issues with setting up the 2x SSD's RAID 0.
I was originally going to go with Tom's Hardware recommended buy of the GIGABYTE GA-X58A-UD3R but I've seen 25%+ newegg reviews are negative (for the two reasons mentioned above as well as lots of DOA boards and bad customer support) as well as a lot of negative things said about it on other forums... So methinks Tom's really dropped the ball with that one doh >< So I'm turning to the community (you guys)!
Any recommendations are much appreciated. Thanks everyone!
First of all, don't trust "most" of newegg reviews.Because they are mostly false.
Anyway,GIGABYTE GA-X58A-UD3R and ASUS P6X58D-E are both great options.
Yea those were the main two I was originally looking to get but couldn't decide which lol
Interesting, so you guys are saying not to lend so much weight to the newegg reviews. I'll take your word for it then I guess My only concern was that there were 20% 1 egg reviews for the GA-X58A-UD3R vs. only 7% for the P6X58D-E. I didn't think that much of a difference could be due to user inexperience but I guess its possible.
Alright so between GA-X58A-UD3R and ASUS P6X58D-E, which one do you think I should get? Are there any key differences between the two or should I just get whichever one is cheaper (GA-X58A-UD3R is on sale for $180 atm)?
