Windows 7: Your opinons on this motherboard

It supports upto 3 graphics cards, so that you can utilise tri-SLI or tri-XFire. For best stability with this, you should ideally use identical cards. Don't mix ATI and NVidia. Make sure that your PSU has plenty of capacity should you go as far as using 3 cards. I would recommend a 1KW (or greater) unit. In fact, I would recommend a unit of that rating, even if you are only planning on using a single card at the moment. That way, you will have enough capacity in reserve for when you decide to upgrade.

Oops. Sorry, my bad.

The link I supplied was for the X58A version. It's still worth bearing this board in mind, though.

Here is a link for the board you are thinking of. GA-EX58-UD3R (rev. 1.7) - GIGABYTE - Product - Motherboard - Overview

You are correct in saying that it only supports 2 graphics cards. It doesn't, however, support the USB 3.0 standard. For that, you will require the X58A version which I linked to in my earlier post.

In your opinon, which do you prefer, the one you posted a link of or the one i posted?

I think this motherboard was the one i was actually looking at in Fry's Electronics because i remember seeing alot of 3 this and 3 that. And it is around the same price so i will go for this one instead of the mistaken motherboard i thought earlier.

If they are around the same price, I might be inclined to go for the X58A model, as that has got more upgrade potential. Just because that model supports 3 graphics cards doesn't necessarily mean that you need to use 3. You can use just 1 and upgrade when funds allow.
