Thread Starter 
i just bought a 2500k and corsair 2x2gb 1600 cl7 memory. now i need a mobo i was looking at the gigabyte ud3 for 129.99 i want a good overclocker, i only use a single video card. so does it make sense to spend more money on a mobo?

Why did you link to the "shopping cart?"
That links to our own accounts, you know?

the way I think of it is its better to have it than not. Pick a mobo that you can sli with 8x 8x down the road. Get the ud5 or Asus p8p67 Pro

At least get the UD3P. The regular UD3 isn't great on VRM power, plus the P looks much better.

I think newegg has the P67X UD3 already in stock. Definitely want to get that one instead of the regular one.. P67X I think has etrontech USB and two extra SATA 6gb ports (Marvell). They're also right angled instead of straight up. But it does cost $25 more than the P67A version. Probably not worth it

If you can find a P67X-UD3R, though, that's the one to get. Some dutchmen managed to overclock to 5900 mhz with it O_O. It's almost like a UD4, basically...

Plus, notice it uses the new color scheme instead of that baby blue

Who knows if the board will ever see the light of day over here, though...
