Hello everyone, long time lurker, first time poster.

I have my entire PC picked out now with the exception of the motherboard, I just can't decide on what to get.

Here is my entire build, excluding the board.

CPU - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Memory - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Video Card - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

SSD - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I don't think I need to bother listing any other components of the system, but if I should I will.

So what do you hardware guys think? What motherboard should I get? P55/LG1156 obviously. I just cant decide on which one. I was leaning towards a Gigabyte board, but I keep hearing about issues with Gigabyte boards and SSD drives?

Any help would be appreciated.

Also, I don't wanna go over $200. Thanks!

That seems like its mainly for overclocking, which I don't really plan on doing. I should have mentioned that in the first post.

Just got one with my i7-860 and love it,overclocking was beyond easy and it even has SATA 6 and USB 3.0, can't beat it for $180

I was kind of leaning toward that one, I hear lots of people saying it has crackling and hissing noises though, does your board do that? I'll probably end up going with that one.

Nope no noises here, I literally have nothing bad to say about the board, I bought it from newegg, overclocked incredibly well, BIOS is the best in the business, it's made by ASUS, SATA 6, USB 3.0, SLI, and best of all, only $180, make the jump :D
