Does your period (ie - ".") key work? Oh wait, nevermind. I see one in there.

Edit - I literally found this in less then two seconds by typing "sli" and hitting "enter" at GOOGLE.CA. Neat eh? It was the first link in the given list.

What do you plan on doing with your PC? Will you be overclocking? Will you be gaming? Will you use a multi-GPU setup? Will you use a PhysX card?

I would personally go with the P6T out of the two, but depending on what you'll be doing with your PC, there may be a reason for you to go with the EVGA board instead.

For an additional (approx) $25 CDN go with the "proven" one...had this Board prior to my Classified Board..excellent Board!

Ultimately the decision is yours to make..

In that case, I'd go with the P6T. But I have a bit of a preference toward ASUS boards in general; it really doesn't matter much which one you pick. The best option is probably just to get whichever is cheaper.

If your planning on OC'ing your CPU the evga Board is a breeze for OC'ing newbs to learn on.....the X58 Support is awesome for any troubleshooting and general support...provided Asus has a similar Site then for sure either one.
I find I'm constantly accessing the Evga Forum for answers..

EVGA X58 SLI Series

Cheers
