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.
