Tbh at that price point i would go with an Asrock board, they have more features for your money. If you want gigabyte i would go with a more mid range board like the z68 ud4 or ud5

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.
