What would be a fast, yet most important.. RELIABLE motherboard for relatively.. 200-250$?

If you want some specs of my build they are..

6gb corsair dominator 1600mhz cas 8

crossfired 6870's

i7 950

no ssd

850 watt corsair 850tx

I dont think anymore information is really neccassary, thanks for all the input! :)

The Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R motherboard is great for its price, at least in my opinion, and should work swimmingly well with your setup at a just over $200 average pricetag.
Even supports full x16 crossfire, not just x8, so that's nice.

I would say Asus Sabertooth at $199!

But an absolute winner is Asus P6X58D-E at $234.

Funny.. the order I considered them was the asus sabertotoh x58 and the asus p6x58d-e and then maybe the ud3r... but the reason I posted this thread was because apparently on all of them the reviews said the company had poor QC and alot of these boards came DOA?

The P6X58D-E is an awesome board and a great overclocker. The DOA thing is more on luck rather than the boards being bad altogether.
