    +1 GIGABYTE

    Get the one with sata 3.0 and usb 3.0 GA-p55A-ud5
    The gd85 does have sata/usb 3.0

    I have 5 or 6 different Giga's and they have all proved rock solid, and good clockers.

    I've always been a Western Digital guy, and their Caviar Black series is top notch in my book. I run a 640GB.

    As far as the motherboard, I've run a Gigabyte P55 for a while, but got sick of the color scheme (I run off an acrylic techstation, so I look at my naked system all day long) and went with an EVGA P55 SLI FTW, and I'm very happy with it, but GB boards are awesome too.

    True, the Giga pcb guys are colourblind but in most cases performance is the determining factor.

    Aren'r EVGA red/black?.............ewwwwwwww.

    I like the old DFI black/yellow. :)

    Ya, the colours takes me away from giga. But nothing to go with more.(Dont have any evga's here) Actually I really will go with the giga, no matter how it looks - inside is the most important :laugh:

    By time you have installed the ram and a decent cooler you can barely see the board anyway ;)

    Fortunately I like blue anyway.

    I like the old DFI as well, but they've made what one P55 motherboard and it's expensive as shit compared to everything else? What happened to them?

    Well my inside is on the outside, so, yeah :roll:

    Oh I can see the board just fine:
