Reccomend me a good motherboard please
 
evening all,

I need help choosing a good motherboard. My budget is 200MAX

I will be using a i7 920 do stepping CPU, Will be overclocked at a later date.

Water cooled setup

I shall be using it for extreme gaming and a lot of internet browsing as well as photoshop and video editing.

Can anyone help me as I quite like the blood range but not sure which is best bang for buck.

I have heard a lot about SLI but dont fully understand it.

Asus p6t V2 all the way my friend :D

easily one of the best i7 boards there is, saying that you cant really go wrong with any x58 chip based motherboard these days.

but if you want too save a little cash there is always the GA-EX58-UD5

P6TD Deluxe - It's the update to the P6T V2 Deluxe and worth every penny :D

Out of those 3 Id get the Gigabye tbh dude.

Coopsman1 06-11-09 04:12 PM

What advantages does the gigabyte have over the XFX X58i?

tinytomlogan 06-11-09 04:22 PM

Ive not used either tbh, but Giga are a good solid mobo brand, and from that list they would be my choice tbh.

Ghosthud1 06-11-09 04:29 PM

the advantage is.................xfx suck soo hard lmao, basically any board i ever bought from them decided to not post after around 2 weeks of use, also there RMA service is terrible so just go with the GA in my eyes defo a top contender or the P6TD ofc

edit:

the GA X58 UD5 is 186 @ scan http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Gigab...00-SATA-II-ATX
