Man, after looking at this one, I am not sure what I want now lol.

The Intel DX58so (SO stands for smack over) is an awesome board as well. It is triple channel ddr3 that holds up to 16 gig ddr3! It is only crossfireX supported and it is a x58, too.

Note: Something you will notice about this board is that it does not have PS2 or Floppy connectors. It's about time, huh?

I think the thing I like best about this board is that it isn't congested. There is a lot of open space on it.

Man some of these Intel board looks pretty sweet. May consider one when I update my desktop in a few years. I'm switching from AMD to Intel, I just feel that they are the better choice.

As far as it goes, intel is better than AMD. There are more options available to them. This one is very nice and layed out better than most.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
