    its really on prefrence man, they are about the same bios wise, if you have a blue color scheme get the gigabyte if you have a red or black get the asus.

    i have the UD7 and love it running i7 920 @ 4.2 1.28v
    chipset watercooled and running cool [thats the big advantage i see over RIIIE]

    UD7 is good but as what overclocking101 have said it's all about your own preference. But the colors on the R3E is very tempting.

    How bwt evga Classy? :D

    I prefer the UD7 because I like being able to watercool the chipset along with cpu and gpu :]
    also GIGABYTE boards hold the bios settings better between overclock failures not so with my past ASUS boards

    Get the RIII it's newer and looks a lot better. By performance, an average user won't see the difference, so go for the prettier one. That`s what i do
