Hey Guys,

I'm starting to prepare for the upgrade from Q6600 to i7. I have decided to go with the i7 950 @ 3.06GHz (1366) since it seems it's plenty an upgrade.

I am considering two motherboards for this. one's microATX and the other one is ATX. I really will never go 3 SLI! maybe 2 SLI so that shouldn't be a factor in deciding between these two:

I don't seem to find important disadvantages between these two but then again, I have an untrained eye for motherboards.

I really am a fan of EVGA and it looks like I don't have that many options under 200USD If you can find a better option at or under 250 let me know!
I currently have an Asus P5ND and I love it so I might also consider ASUS for this upgrade. If you got anything let me know!

This is the Asus I've considered so far:

I really appreciate your help to making the right upgrade!

Thanks a lot! :D

I would go with the EVGA 131 model if in stock at the time of purchase. If not, I would go with ASUS SABERTOOTH X58, as your next option. It is the better board over the EVGA 121 model.
