I will be upgrading my PC very soon and I'm not too sure which board to go with. I will be running 1 9800GX2 and don't plan on using SLI...so I'm guessing its clear to go with a X48 board over a 790i? Which board would be the best performing and also is very well at overclocking? I'm looking at the Asus P5E3 at the moment.
your not running CF so no need for X38 or X48. should be soon we will see boards with P45 chipsets. if you cant wait get a P35 such as, Abit IP35-pro,Gigabyte P35-DS3L,P35-DS3R,P35-DS4.
All boards are nice overclockers(p35,x38,x48,i790) so its also a question how much money you want to spent and what extras you need on your board(esata, 2*Lan and so on).
