Default Need new 775 Motherboard. But which one?!

Hey Guys,

Haven't been to the forums in a while due to college so I don't know if any new Socket 755 boards have come out. I currently have the 790i Ultra SLI which is starting to become flaky and unstable. So my question is what is one of the best Socket 755 motherboards out currently that is stable and overclocks well? Also what ram should I get along with the motherboard? My current system specs are in my signature.

Thanks for any replies!

P45 motherboards are the best overclockers for lga775 in fact the current and previous fsb world record holders both used the p45 chipset.

The Gigabyte EP45T-UD3P is a excellent motherboard for overcloking 45nm quad cores and supports DDR3 so you could reuse your current ram.

That looks like an awesome board. Read reviews and benchmarks, it looks like a winner. If anyone disagrees or has another board they state is better than this, please by all means state why I should get another board. So far this one looks like a winner, plus keeping my DDR3 is a nice bonus.
