Need input on motherboard choice

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello OCN im getting a different motherboard. the MSI one listed in "mycomputer" was no good and want to get a different one. I have narrowed it down to two different ones, The ASUS P6X58D-E, and The GIGABYTE G1.Guerrilla. Each one has similar features, First the Asus
and the and the Gigabyte

Both have Sata III, USB 3.0, and Sli/tri SLI. The big difference is the Gigabyte has 16x 16x 8x and the asus has 16x 8x 8x. The asus is $200 after MIR and the Gigabyte is $285 after MIR
Any one have an opinion on which one is better?
Thanks for the Input!

If the pcie slots are the only real difference id go with the Asus over the gigabyte because im a strict believer that one good card is better than two cheap cards. Be honest with yourself and ask, will you ever actually use crossfire or sli.....
I have also had great experience with overclocking and general user friendliness on asus boards as far as bios and included software.
whichever your choice, good luck and enjoy!
