So I'm looking at getting these:
EVGA P55 SLI
or Asus Maximus III Gene
--and-- Core i7 860
I'm looking for a 3.8-4ghz OC on my Corsair H50. If I would be better off with a different motherboard, I'm open to considerations. I like the 3 PCI-E slots of the EVGA so I could run 3 cards for F@H if I wanted to (however, this would probably be unlikely). I really like the uATX form-factor of the Asus, because although I currently have an ATX case, I think there's a decent chance I'll downsize to uATX at some point. I'd really like to stay at under $450 for the mobo and CPU, so if I get a nicer mobo, I'd probably get a cheaper Lynnfield-HT Xeon
instead, such as the X3440.
