Both the P67 & X58 are excellent for SLI/Xfire...Google some reviews, make the comparison and you will see for yourself

I am wondering about the Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD3 LGA 1156 P55 ATX Motherboard; is this a good motherboard for the system I am thinking of building? How does this board compare to the likes of the P67 or other P chip sets? I am considering pairing this with the Intel Core i7 2600K LGA 1155 Processor and Corsair 4GB or 6GB of DDR3-1333 Dual Channel Desktop Memory?
Is that going to be a good pairing or should I go with something else? I am not a gamer, however I would like to build an enthusiast machine that will give good bang for the buck.

actually it is the i7 950 against the i5 2500k so the p67 is cheaper, and why the 460 768mb and not the 6850?

Just so you know, Sandy Bridge CPU's only have 16 PCIe lanes on-die with a few more provided by the P67 chipset. This means that multi-GPU setups will run in x8/x8 unless the NF200 chip is present. You will not notice much of a decrease in performance if any, maybe a 3-4% drop at high resolutions. If you plan on buying a 3rd GPU in the future for tri-Fire/tri-SLI, this will be a problem, though.

What is the performance drop with NF200 chip?

With the NF200, the configuration will be 16x+8x+8x. The performance drop is absolute minimal. You will not be able to notice it by the eye. This was proven with the 1156 mobos that had the NF200 when compared to the X58 mobos running Tri-SLI.
