If you plan on overclocking you might want to consider the Biostar x58, it's also cheaper than the evga.

That one? I had a biostar with my last rig and it did seem to boot up faster than my Asus.

That's it. The Biostar is one of the best overcloking x58 motherboards.

Meh I just don't like their boards...

Something like the MSI, Gigabyte, or Asus would be a much better choice.

Biostars been cranking out some monster boards lately.

Now they just need to make them a bit more appealing....that X58 looks decent.
