also, why the gigabyte mobo? I've been looking through user reviews and aside from brand loyalty most ASus boards in the same range seem to get better reviews
Top 2 on my mobo shopping list for mid-high end build :
If you don't like the Gigabyte...simply move to ASUS...and vice versa...
I see no problem in this matter.
Both of them are the best mobo manufacturers according to my experience.
