  1. EVGA P55 FTW 200 - ATX would make it sell quicker

  2. EVGA P55 Classified 200 - EATX wouldn't bother me

    I have the chance to pick up either of these boards for a pretty decent deal.

    However, I don't plan to keep them for long. I just want to play around then sell them. I think both are pretty equal in terms of overclocking, at least close enough for air cooling, and I wouldn't need or use all the PCI-E slots since I'd only use one graphics card.

    The biggest issue I have is resale, which is going to be easier to resell? Normally I would go witht he P55 Classified 200 since it is the more expensive board, but the EATX form factor worries me. I think EATX would turn a lot of buyers away. Thoughts?

    I don't think that would be a problem here. As long as it's cheap enough people will buy it.

    easier to resale probably the FTW 200 as even though its an overclocker's board, it looks more mainstream and you can probably get people that are not but want to become enthusiast trying to buy it. Trying to sell the classified is like trying to sell a ferrari, expensive business and only a car enthusiast will want one.
