In that price range:
EVGA X58 FTW3 132-GT-E768-KR
ASUS P6X58D Premium

I've built on both, but EVGA has the edge in OC'ing and offers all the latest SATA3, USB3, + 3-WAY SLI/CF and either one will be a great choice.

Good Luck!

been looking in the stores in my country and both are about 300 euros :( 

so found some replacements can u tell wich one is better:
GIGABYTE GA-X58A-UD3R - 180,30 (has both sata3, usb3 and triple channel ram)
EVGA X58 SLI LE IntelX58 SK1366 - 225,90 euros (no usb3 and no sata3)
Asrock X58 Extreme 3 Intel SK1366 - 197,50 euros (2 Sata3, no usb3)

EVGA boards tend to be better compared to the rest when it comes to overclocking.. For the price though, the Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R will be an all-round excellent choice.. Also check on the MSI BigBang XPower X58 motherboard.. If it is available in your price range then look no further and grab it..

The GA-X58A-UD3R was a massive Achilles Heel - when combined with SSD + HDD the MOBO will exhibit BSOD and shutdowns; great on paper but poor in reality - it's a shame.

Hopefully in Euros the ASUS P6X58D-E is within budget; solid board and I use them in Office pseudo WS.
