    EVGA is set to announce the X58 Classified motherboard. The Intel Core i7 compatible motherboard is set to be one of the most feature-rich and expensive LGA-1366 motherboards till date. The design focus of this motherboard is based on the power-circuitry that fuels its various components. A 1.33 MHz 10-phase digital PWM circuitry with dual 8-pin 12V inputs, along with 4-phase circuit for the DDR3 memory, and 3-phase NB power. Four PCI-E x16 slots driven by the Intel X58 chipset in conjuction with NVIDIA's nForce BR-03 chipset adds 3-way SLI + an additional slot for a GeForce accelerator dedicated to process PhysX. Elaborate heatpipe-driven coolers over the board's northbridge and VRM areas keep temperatures under check. The X58 Classified is priced at US $449, and will start selling shortly. The product has made it to EVGA's catalogues and its product page online. A demonstration video of the product by EVGA can be viewed here.

    Says the AMD guy who says, "I will not buy intel and never will." I don't want to start something, but it's a cheap shot to rag on people who want to pay for a "sure fire" tank.

    Whoa, that was strange, when you replied Binge, your post just magically appeared out of nowhere, like I didn't have to refresh the page for it to show up. I've never seen that before, is that a new feature? (Off topic I know)

    Google tells me that works out to be £6 more than I paid for my Rampage II Extreme, which doesn’t seem like an over the top price for a high end x58 motherboard. I know ASUS have status which allows them charge crazy prices for stuff but all in all I don’t think you can call other brands expensive for doing the same. There is no point comparing this to a UD3 for example (cheapest x58 mobo that I know of) because they are aimed at a completely different market. Doing this is no more ridiculous than the concept of EE CPUs, there’s a CPU which costs a grand and there’s a similar one for £250. Is that ridiculous?

    As soon as my daughter is born I'm buying this board. I'm going all out on my i7 build as I anticipate that it will hold me over for the next 7-8 years. I've migrated from PC gaming over to console gaming (Love my PS3 and 1080p LCD with surround). I still play PC exclusive shooters tho.

    I think building your rig will be about the last thing on your mind once youve had a little nipper! Trust ME!

    true, but i've been holding back the itch for too long, and now that I know the 32nm i7s will fit into the x58 boards I think i'm all set.
