Dude. We'll need the rest of your desired system specs, what games you'll be playing, what software, your budget, etc.

More info needed.

As Majin stated, without knowing what CPU you're using, what video card you plan on using, etc., it's hard to suggest a board. That being said, here are my top LGA2011 motherboard picks.


ASUS Sabertooth X79 (Newegg.com $329)
ASRock X79 Extreme9 (Newegg.com $354)
MSI Big Bang-XPower II (Newegg.com $389)
ASUS Rampage IV Extreme (Newegg.com $439)
