Ok need a new motherboard as I officially fried my Gigabyte GA-X58-USB3, so need a good recommendation of a new board that supports SLI below $200 and when I mean below $200, I dont meant $199.99 Thanks.

Please dont ask why I fried my motherboard.

I would go with the ASRock X58 Extreme3, as my final choice (since I can't go with the $199.99 ASUS SABERTOOTH X58 :D  )

As you noticed, no one listed the UD3R as there are to many related issues with the board. It is no longer a highly recommended board within this forum. I would go with any of the boards listed above or spend the extra cash for at least the ASUS Sabertooth X58.

UD3R -> {known H/W issues; and in general very problematic MOBO} http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/276715-30-x58a-ud3r-r... It's great on paper or in a very simple configuration, but the UD3R appears here too often to be coincidental.

The ASUS P6X58D-E is how the UD3R 'should be' and runs very well!

Single to Dual Card Setup, SABERTOOTH is equal to the P6X58D-E with the better value... IMO

Tri-card setup, the P6X58D-E is the way to go.

SABERTOOTH X58 vs P6X58D-E the P6X58D-E is 16+2 phase vs 8+2+2 ; so I don't recommend the SABERTOOTH X58. In addition the P6X58D-E supports 3-WAY CF/SLI vs the SABERTOOTH X58 2-WAY.

The Power {Stability} alone justifies the small price difference. I get budget but I too get value and logic.

If you can afford the Rampage III formula, then surely go for it.. Its probably the best X58 board out there..

Ehh, the 'best' i7 1366 MOBO 'currently' available is the Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD9; it too is the ONLY GA MOBO I can recommend with a straight face.

so bottom line is since the ud9 is too much I should get either the rampage iii formula or the P6X58D-E or the P6X58D Premium right

I would go with the P6X58D-E and used the savings over the ASUS Rampage III Formula to purchase/upgrade another component for your PC.

No point considering the P6X58D Premium.. You can opt for an open box version of the R3F to cut down on the costs..

I agree with the ASUS P6X58D-E, I have 9 running 7/24 since July and zip issues!
