Best: This would hurt your wallet badly but: 790i Ultra even though it has the Video Corruption Bug

Best with good B for the $- DFI LanParty DK P35 or 750i FTW (if you want SLI)

Whoa... I've never seen that board ever... but nice!!

It seems to be either a Hit or a Miss according to reviews, but then again it could be a bunch of noobs..

check the guys at xtreme because they seem to do wonders w/ it. It needs a bios update badly I guess. It was designed w/ the help of Shimano

Gigabyte GA-EP35-DS3P

What I love about it, is that I don't have to go to the BIOS to overclock anything.
There is a software included where everything gets done so easy.
( My build is not complete, but I used somebody same mobo and it worked wonders.)
