Best 1155 Board?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I know this has probably been asked to death but now that people are starting to settle into their new SB systems and I am planning on grabbing one thought I'd ask. What is the best 1155 board? Price is really no object for me but they are all under 200 (from what I have seen) so just anything will do.

10 USB 3.0, Bluetooth, superb quality components. And if Newegg is correct on the specifications on the GPUs: "triple @x8, x16, x16" that means it has a chip that gives more PCI-E lanes like NF200 or something. A normal P67 board would only run x8/x4/x4 lol which is pathetic for 3 way sli/cfx.

Well I only plan on doing 2 way 580s but maybe other card for folding or something....


But honest question here are the higher quality components worth the 150 extra charge? Sorry if I seem to be tenuous on my response but I have no problem paying the extra money but only if it is really worth it. Last build I went all the TOL items and just don't want to waste money.

The gigabyte ud7 seems to be a popular choice here.

Now the obvious question that arises when talking about 300+ dollar boards is are they worth it to someone who is just going to MAYBE go SLI and doesn't do anything really special?

This board was in a deal with the 2600k. (Just for comparison sake)

Also are there still those deals going on that you can get the 2600k for 260 I saw a little bit back?

P67a-ud7, don't buy unless you want SLI, there is no point, just get the UD5. Gigabyte says that the UD4 and UD3P are for people who are just normal mild/advanced OCers, the UD5 and UD7 are built for heavy extreme OCing and stability.

I just would want 4.5 or so GHZ and SLI 580s. Would a UD7 or maximus last me longer? Because I just spent 300 on this mobo and am going to be selling it so it leaves me in this... is it worth it? State.
