Hello TH'ers,

I recently acquired the i7 970 and am putting a system together. I would like to hear some opinions as to which motherboard to go with - here are the ones I am looking at.

Gigabyte X58
ASUS P6X
ASUS SABERTOOTH

Should I even mess with an open box?

ASUS p6X Premium

Memory - Depending on the MOBO
Corsair Dominator 1866 6GB

or

Corsair Dominator 1866 8GB
