Nov 4, 2010, 11:00 PM
Hi everyone, im about to buy my pc parts for my new build in 3-4 days and i am still torn between to motherboard for my coolermaster 690 II advanced.
1. The gigabyte X58-UD3R
2. or the Asus P6X58D-E
I will be running an I7-950 @ 4GHZ and i also want to run to Spinpoint F3's in RAID 0 as well as a GTX 460 SLI.
Which board would be better suited? (dont care about price). thanks

If you are not concerned about the price difference get the ASUS. They are both good boards, the price difference would do the selection for me personally.

It's a very close call for me too but can the gigabyte board run RAID 0 as well as the ASUS one?
