Default Motherboard decision.

OK it is getting serious now. Taxes are paid and baring a huge bill from the car checkup tomorrow I will be ordering within the next week.

I have it narrowed down to two boards. Keep in mind that I am limited to the available boards here in Sweden.

1) ASUS P6T Deluxe V2
Newegg.com - ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

2) GIGABYTE GA-EX58-UD5
Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-EX58-UD5 LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

I do really like the evga Newegg.com - EVGA 132-BL-E758-A1 LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards
But as of yet I have not been able to find one available here.

I have a corasir 750TX, XFX gtx260 and all the other random stuff.

Planing on using CORSAIR DOMINATOR 6GB 1600 Newegg.com - CORSAIR DOMINATOR 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Triple Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory
I love OCZ and G-Skill but cannot find them.

Keep in mind the NewEgg links are for ease only.
I am assuming a link to a Swedish website will not be too helpful.

I am a little partial to Asus as they have treated me well. Both boards seem to have similar overclocking results.

Let me know what you think. If there is a board I should be looking at let me know and I will see if I can find it.

That is why it is number 1 right now. Just making sure I did not miss anything in my research.

Thanks

my choice would be the gigabyte. i my opinion it has a better layout and looks unique.

Eww... I'd say that gigabyte board looks ugly. I've always liked black boards myself.

I'd personally lean towards the P6T...unless you can find a good deal on a TPower X58.
