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?

alright i'll just get the gigabyte since the price of the asus doesn't really justify it much. Thank you :)
