Is this a good MB?

235 4
I am assembling my list for a new build and need opinions on this board. I have ALWAYS used ASUS boards, but they don't sell one with the exact combination of things that I need.

This machine will be based around a 2600K processor, I will use it primarily for gaming and video editing (for personal use, not professional.)

Features I require in the board: 2 PCIe x16 slots with Crossfire support, 2 regular PCI slots, 4x240 memory slots, and 4+ SATA3 ports. ASUS does not have one with all these requirements. I've never used Gigabyte, so I'm looking for opinions on if this is a good board and a safe choice, or if there are concerns.

Thanks very much for any thoughts.

the GB is better if you are going to treat the board harsh, it can take a lot of crap. The asrock does have more features for the price tho, like eSATA and extra connectivity like that.
