Default BEST Motherboard?

What do you guys think is the BEST gaming/extreme performance mobo?

I currently have the MSI K9N Diamond, it is a good mobo, but I feel like it isn't the best, and thats what I'm all about

THAT, and the BIOS wont allow me to OC the RAM, CPU or my MOBO :[[

I have several reccommendations for the Asus Striker Extreme
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131074

And for a little less money, but still great quality like it, the Asus P5N32-E SLI Plus
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131153

And these are MADE for OC'ing.

Lol, and I'm sorry, but why do these look like triple GPU operable? XD



SO, what do you guys think? Anything better?

I plan on having 4GB's of DDR2 in it, 2 HD's, my AMD Athlon X2 4200, A new audio card, and TWO 8800GTS Superclocked 640MB.

yeeeeahhh, i see that now.

shit.

well i already have a MSI K9n diamond mobo with 1 8800GTS 640 and the 4GB's of ram. so i only need to get the 2nd gts and im set.

but shit... now I have to sell my old proccessor :[

Is that the best proccessor? Q6600? and how is the mobo? is it worth buying a brand new proccessor? mine is only a few months old :/

Whats an equally good mobo for AMD???

I love this board:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131011

I own it as well and its Great.
Plus unlike some other boards if you Sli this board its at 16x speed for both of them.
Some boards only have 16x for one card and when you Sli them it downs them to 8x speed.

So if your Sli'ing get this board.

I've always like this one when it comes to AMD motherboards. It's not too expensive and not too cheap either. Right down the middle with a blend of nice features and performance:

ASUS M2N32-SLI Deluxe Wireless Edition AM2 NVIDIA nForce 590 SLI MCP ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail

That's why it's so popular. It's because it is a good motherboard. Wireless features, lots of hard drive ports, excellent chipset and yes, it is also at full x16, x16 speed, hehe.

.....well just look here. It gives a more detail run down on that motherboard:

Personally, I prefer the X38T-DQ6 from Gigabyte or the P5E3 from ASUs.

So the ASUS M2N32 is really good for performance and graphics wise?

And I like the Gigabyte GA-X38T-DQ6! Looks like a box of skittles! and I LOVEEE all those USB ports, but is it x16 x16 for SLI'ing?

I like the Asus Striker because its just so great for performance and has 3 other PCI slots, Id really like something like it.

I LOVE the P5E3, but it dosent support AMD. but besides that, how is it if i eventually, and will get the Q6600 quad, how is it with OCing and performance, etc.

PErsonally, I thought of waiting for a Q6850. Not a QX6850. Too expensive for an unlocked multiplier.
