Default Looking to Purchase A Motherboard. Help?

I'm new. Building a computer and looking to purchase a mobo. I have narrowed it down to 7 Higherend boards (all different manufactures). I have an i5 750 just itching to be put in a powerful board. I'm leaning towards the ASUS or the Foxconn. Any suggestions?

ASUS
Newegg.com - ASUS P7P55D-E Pro LGA 1156 Intel P55 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

MSI
Newegg.com - MSI P55-GD65 LGA 1156 Intel P55 ATX Intel Motherboard

GIGABYTE
Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-P55A-UD4P LGA 1156 Intel P55 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard w/ USB 3.0 & SATA 6 Gb/s

Intel
Newegg.com - Intel BOXDP55KG LGA 1156 Intel P55 ATX Intel Motherboard

DFI
Newegg.com - DFI LANParty DK P55-T3eH9 LGA 1156 Intel P55 ATX Intel Motherboard

EVGA
Newegg.com - EVGA P55 LE 123-LF-E653-KR LGA1156 Intel P55 ATX Intel Motherboard

Foxconn
Newegg.com - Foxconn Inferno Katana LGA 1156 Intel P55 ATX Intel Motherboard

Thanks for any suggestions.

Best regards,
Mike

If your not dying to get USB 3.0 this is a great motherboard
EVGA P55 FTW SLI Motherboard - Intel P55, Socket LGA1156, SLI+PhysX, Crossfire at TigerDirect.com

I have a bit of a hold back on ASUS and out of all your choices that is the last I would choose.
Hope that helps a little.

I like EVGA boards myself but I wouldn't buy the FTW mobo. If I was going to spend that much I would just buy the Classified board. On a budget I would go with this board at $144.99 after a $40 rebate.

I don't shop at TigerDirect and you'll never see me link to them.

I'm going to go with this board. It looks great. Will it support DDR3 1600 RAM?
