After selling 3 of my x58 boards in the spring, I now have the winter itch to build another rig. I'm looking for a mid to higher end x58 board and a decent price. I have a few requirements for this purchase. Here they are:

1)You must be the original owner. Receipt and board still under warranty is a bonus.

2)Board must have original packaging. If it's missing a couple of SATA cables, that's fine but I do need the manual, driver CD and anything else that came with the board.

3)Board needs to work as new.

4) No MSI or ECS boards, period. I'd prefer a higher end Gigabyte, Asus, EVGA or even Biostar.

Let me know what you have, and what you want for it!

*I MAY be interested in trading my 128GB Gskill Pheonix Pro SSD for the board, if you are interested*

LOL. If it makes you feel any better, I'm not sure I'm gonna shell out cash for something like a classy or a UD7. Maybe, just a step lower. ;)

I will have a LNIB Asus Rampage III Gene once it gets back from RMA. Would you be interested in mATX?

Possibly interested in both boards, dependent on RMA ETA and price. Sent you both PM's.

Would you be interested in an Intel DX58SO? I'm not sure if it's mid-tier or not...?
Intel boards usually have a bad rap for limited options, but this one is decent.
I have the box, manuals, CDs, and the sata connectors. Don't have the game CD


Here is a review:

No interest in the Intel board.
