P55, P67, X58, Oh my! Tags: Motherboards Product Last response: January 29, 2011 5:19 PM in Motherboards Share xander25 January 29, 2011 4:58:49 PM Good afternoon, folks! I'm an intense gamer looking for advice on mobos. I only allow myself to build a PC every 2 years so it always seems like I'm starting from scratch. In trying to select a motherboard, I'm stuck between the three intel options available. Here's what I'm looking to do: i5-2500K gskill quad channel 16GB (mostly because I don't want to upgrade later or I'd get the 12gb) 120gb 6GB/sec SSD 1tb WD 6GB/sec storage GTX 580 I'll only be using a single card for now but I'd like to option to SLI in the future, I think. My overclocking expectiation is very modest. I'm getting the K processor for some simple multipliers but I won't be tinkering with every last bit of my system trying to squeeze 17MHz out of it. I'm willing to go up to $400 if I have to but only if it's worth it for gaming. I bow to your far superior expertise Thanks in advance!
