Just got my i7 920 in and im looking to get a motherboard for it. should i wait for any new motherboards/technology to come out before i spend money?


I'm looking for:

x58
sata 6GB/s
usb 3.0
very good pwm
easy overclocking
at most dual gfx cards
a good warranty
preferably long life out of the motherboard

price is not to much of a problem, i firmly believe in getting what you pay for


Any help is appreciate it before i put my money on something i won't be happy with.

EVGA X58 3X SLI or the classified.
Not sure what the USB is though on it.

USB 3.0 you're limited to a few boards at this time.

Gigabyte has horrible layouts, so I would go with the Asus.

EVGA x58 classifed or the 3 way sli, but if sata III and usb 3 is a must, those linked above are your only choices
