The striker is the best motherboard for LGA775 right now.

Thats a hell of a rig if thats your true components

I would get the XBX2 if it was me, but your not. Get the Striker, its overpriced, but performs well and has alot of features.

the rig is in progress not built yet and subject to change hope to have it finished before the end of the year though if I can get my hands on the cpu can't find some one to sell it to me right now not enough being made. Thanks though if I can get it together I'm already thinking of cutting corners
