Recommend me a mobo

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Ok I have a Asus p8p67 LE which i'm currently selling because it doesn't support SLI. Now I'm looking for a good board for around 200$ which can support my i7 2600k and my SLI 480s. I was thinking maybe a asus sabertooth? What are your suggestions? I would mostly like to stick with ASUS thnx

The Saber tooth looks like a good board but your double slot coolers will cover the only PCI slot on the board, at least it is this way for the 1366 Saber tooth

(edit)
just looked at a pic of the P67 B3 board, the PCI slot is all the way to the bottom

There is no big difference but obviously z68 is newer and it cost around the same as P8P67 Pro.

Z68 allows you to use graphic card on your cpu that's great if you don't have back up card and it has SSD caching.
Check http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LGA_1155 it has a lot of nice information.

I would honestly go with the Sabertooth, but if you need Z68 then go for the Asus P8Z68-V Pro...
