  1. Welcome to Tom's Forum! :)

    If you want the 'older' 1156 then either the ASUS P7P55D-E Pro {CF/SLI} or ASUS P7P55D-E LX {single GPU}. side-by-side|13-131-621^13-131-621-TS%2C13-131-634^13-131-634-TS

    If you want the 'newer' LGA 1155 then the ASUS P8P67 DELUXE or ASUS P8P67 PRO.

    Maximus IV Extreme {2~3WAY, x8...x8, Marvell 9182 [ASUS typo? 9128] RAID 0/1, Dual Intel LAN}
    P8P67 WS Revolution {2~3WAY & 4-WAY Quadro only, x8...x8, Marvell 9128 RAID 0/1, Dual Intel LAN}

    P8P67 DELUXE {2-WAY, x8/x8 + x4 open, Marvell 9128 RAID 0/1, USB3 Ft Panel}

    P8P67 EVO {2-WAY, x8/x8 + x4 open, Marvell 9120 no RAID, Dual Intel LAN}
    P8P67 PRO {2-WAY, x8/x8 + x4 open, Marvell 9120 no RAID}

    P8P67 LE {cheap}
    P8P67 {cheap}
    P8P67-M {cheap}
    P8P67-M PRO {cheap}
    SABERTOOTH P67 {cheap}

    EVGA, maybe the EVGA P67 SLI non-Intel LAN and I 'think' Marvell 9128 RAID 0/1 {I know it offers SATA3 RAID 0/1}.
  2. Thx, what would u choose from this list? (computer NOT for games)

    P7P55 Pro
    P7P55D-E LX
  3. ASUS P7P55D-E LX {lacks IEEE 1394/Firewire} if you're willing to buy a dedicated GPU. I don't really recommend onboard GPU MOBOs even for a desktop PC. I assume you want SATA3 ports.
  4. thx mate, i appreciate your help
