I am currently stuck in choosing the motherboard for my new PC which runs on Intel Core i7 920.

Current Specifications:

3x2GB DDR3 1333MHz Kingston RAM
Sapphire - ATI Radeon HD 5850
Seagate 3.5" 1.5TB
Intel Core i7 920

Motherboard choices:

Asus P6T
Asus P6TD
Asus P6TSE

Gigabyte X58A-UD3R

The Gigabyte is $200 cheaper than the Asus P6TD. Which do you think has most value for money?

If it was my dollar, I'd go Gigabyte. The X58A-UD3R seems to have more features for the money. I used to run all ASUS boards, but got my first Gigabyte (LGA775) board a few weeks back, and I love it.

I read a while back that if you run two GPU's in the Gigabyte board though, they run at 8x. I could be wrong about that though, maybe someone can correct me if I am.

What features does the ASUS P6TD have that the Gigabyte doesn't?
