Best LGA 2011 Mobo

Does anybody know what the best LGA 2011 Mobo is? I know the Rampage IV Extreme is probably considered the best but I cant find it anywhere and was looking for some other options. Price is not a concern. Also should i get an x79 mobo or should i wait for the ivy bridge processors come out and get an x77 mobo. I heard ivy bridge was more focused towards macs. Idk any suggestions?

  1. Gaming? Don't get X79. Get SB/IB with Z77 mobo. Workstation with lots of pwoer? X79 is yours.

    Are you saying x79 is not good for gaming because that would be part of my use
  3. X79 is great for gaming. What will be this rig's use other than gaming?

    A little video editing and just other normal use
  5. If it is just a little I would wait for Ivy Bridge. It is coming out April 29th so not much of a wait. The best Z77 motherboard available on newegg is the Asus P8Z77 WS- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131822&Tpk=p8z77%20ws --> it is capable of running 2 GPU's pci-e 3.0 x16/x16

    And then get the I7 3770k when it comes out on April 29th.
  6. You don't require 6 core CPUs for gaming, hence X79 isnt best suited for gaming
  7. Well there is the i7 3820 which can be overclocked a lot contrary to what many people think. Here is a review where they overclocked the i7 3820 to 5.0ghz @1.48v. The i7 3820 is also generally faster than the i7 2600k. The only downside to it is its higher power consumption.

    EDIT: I forgot to mention it also has 4 cores and 8 threads like the i7 2600k so it is not overkill for gaming.
