Hey there fellow OCNer! I would like some advice on something. I am currently building a new X58 rig for audio/video editing and some gaming. The specs are as follows (so far):

Intel Core i7 920
Corsair H50
12GB Corsair Dominator DDR3 1600
Sapphire Radeon HD 4870x2
1.25kW CM Real Power Pro
OCZ Vertex 2E 120GB, 2x WD Caviar Black 640GB [RAID0], Samsung SpinPoint F3 1TB, WD Caviar Green 1TB

Now what I need is a motherboard. I would like to buy used to save money and the prices below reflect what I could find on various marketplaces. These are my choices so far.

Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R - $150
Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD7 - $210
Asus P6X58D Premium - $160
EVGA Classifield 4way - $210 (probably not due to lack of USB3 and SATA3)

Which should I get from that list? Or if it's not on the list, which should I get? I want to overclock like crazy (lol) but the less I spend the better.

Thanks guys!

I would get the 4-Way Classy, but you only need probably EVGA Classified3.
The EVGA X58 Classified3 or the ASUS P6X58D Premium or maybe UD7

The 4-way Classy is larger than ATX so only get that if you have a 8-10 slot case or a test bench.
