1155 - MoBo: UD4, P8P67 or Sabertooth?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi there,
I bet there are already loads of such topics but I'm new to this forum and don't get along well yet, sorry..

So I want to use an i7-2600K and a single GTX 570 and I don't know anything about mainboards..

1. Which mainboard would be like the best choice: the Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD4, the ASUS P8P67 Pro/Evo/Deluxe or the ASUS Sabertooth P67?

They are from 150€ to 190€ so I wouldn't care for the price difference, I just want to know which would be the best and why (some arguments) as I don't even know in which they differ..

2. Which of those would be the best for GTX 570 SLI? Do they even support it?..

3. Would it be very reasonable to go for the UD5 or UD7, what would be the benefits?

4. Would 16x/16x give a great advantage over 8x/8x?

Thank you very much!

16x/16x vs 8x/8x is talking like a difference of 1-4% performance from a few benchies ive seen over the past few years...

i wouldnt spend a fortune unless your really need to squeeze every last bit outta a sli/cf build...

the gigabyte boards have some really weird slot patterns... the ud5 would be amazing if it didnt have a heatsink blocking the top pci-e 1x slot.

The asus sabertooth looks retarded... id just go with the p8p67 that fits your needs.
