p55 Classified or Maximus III Formula

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm going to be building a new pc sometime within the next couple of weeks with an i5 750 and GTX 480. Between the evga and asus boards, which would you pick and why?

Thanks

The eVGA looks like a nicer board overall and has the NF200 for added expansion in case you ever want to SLI the GTX 480. Otherwise you are stuck with 8x8 on the Asus board.

No contest the classified will win. Though if were compare a maximus III extreme that would be a better fight. The maximus III extreme has usb 3 and all those neat features that the older p55 classified doesn't have. Problem with the nf200 chip is it another chip that runs hot.

at that price though, would i be better off just looking at i7/x58 boards?
