Ok the last thing i need to add to my build is my motherboard. So im caught in a bind deciding between the two choices if narrowed it down to.
The First is the

Asus Sabertooth X58

and the

Gigabyte Ud3r


I do plan on some overclocking nothing extreme and only going to a dual gpu setup of 6870 xfire. And that would be the max i would never plan on upgrading any more than a dual gpu.

If you have other recommendations as to which motherboard i should choose feel free to let me know im open to any and all suggestions

Quite honestly they are both quality boards and at the same price too. I would personally go for the gigabyte just because I have always used them and have had no problems with them, but from a neutral perspective then I would go for the asus.

There are apparently very many complaints with that particular Gigabyte motherboard.. I'll choose the Asus Sabertooth over it..

The P6X58D-E has the ability to have three-way cf or sli while the sabertooth only only has two way. The P6X58D-E also has an extra PCI slot if you need it. The sabertooth however does have a five year warranty compared to the P6X58D-E 3 year warranty.
