which mobo?!?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
so im building my new comp here and ordering new parts within the next few weeks so far ive ordered my monitor, case, and processor (24" gateway, cosmos s, and e8500) i noticed a bunch of deals on newegg end tonight so i was wondering if this mobo is better than the 750i FTW which i was going to go with. Ill be picking up some g. skill ddr2 1066 memory (8gigs in total) and a gtx 280 eventually. Down the road i plan on going SLI but right now its outside my budget and well frankly not needed yet. This mobo has a good deal right now and im wondering if it will OC better and run SLI better when i do go SLI.

Out of the two boards you posted, you will get a much better overclock out of the 750i FTW hands down. Go with that one.
