Hello, im building a new pc and about to buy a motherboard i came to 2 choices but cant tell which one is better, since its my first build. Intel BOXDX58SO2 Socket LGA1366 Motherboard thats the first one and this is the link for it http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...

this is the second one ASUS P6X58D Premium Motherboard and this is the link http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...

I would go with the ASUS P6X58D-E, instead. It is basically the same board as the Premium without the second LAN. I wouldn't go with Intel boards, as they are the best over clocking setups. The ASUS board I listed, is one of the best you can buy for an X58 for price to features / performance.

On a side-note, why not a Sandy Bridge (P67) setup instead?? An i5 2500K CPU will perform better than most X58 CPU's for gaming at a lower price. You'll only really see an issue in a 3+ card setup at high resolutions (multiple monitors) on the P67 platform.
