picking a motherboard

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, im currently building / pricing a new rig and i want to switch to Intel from AMD, no offence to AMD its been good to me for all my builds but im ganna give intel a chance seeing as its doing very well.

So whats good intel motherboards? i know sandybridges is coming out very shortly but i dont think im going to buy into it right away, its an option so if someone could link me to a motherboard for that chipset it would be awesome .

OT, the motherboard i was looking at was the Asus Sabertooth ( http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16813131665 )

Preferbly looking for a motherboard that will support sli / crossfire for the HD 5770 by shappire.

The case would mabe be a CM Storm Scout or a CM Scout Sniper.
thanks in advance.
