Asus rampage 2 extreme is one of the best boards on the market!

What specs do you need that a more inexpensive board doesnt have?

EVGA 141-BL-E757-TR
or
GIGABYTE GA-EX58-UD5

Will get you where you need to go as far as overclocking goes. Im pretty sure both can reach 200bclk.

I like mine but it was at a "you can't refuse this deal" price.
But it seems on the i7 boards, the quality of oc mostly depends on the cpu, imo.
