Default Gaming build

Right sorry if I'm starting to get annoying but I've changed my build from AMD to Intel.
I'm looking at getting the i7 920 but I really can't decide on what x58 mobo to get. I'd like it to be SLi and Crossfire and came to the FoxConn Flaming Blade or Blood Rage GTI, what are your guys opinions on those two? And are there other, better ones for that price range - $250ish (from Britain so more looking at 150...was just a quick conversion off google).
I've heard good things about the FoxConn ones, but also not so good things. I've never overclocked anything before, but I would probably try it given the right guides.
Thanks for any advice given,

Default Re: Gaming build

In that price range I would look at these boards: - ASUS P6T LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards - EVGA E758-TR 3-Way SLI (x16/x16/x8) LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards - GIGABYTE GA-EX58-UD5 LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

In that order. They are newegg links but you can find them at your UK vendor of choice.
ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 :: INTEL i7 920 @3.4 :: XFX GTX260 :: 6gb Corsair 1600 :: Corsair 750TX :: TRUE 120 :: Samsung T240 24" :: Windows 7 X64

I do not accept support questions via PM
