My System Specs

Default i7 920 & Motherboard which to keep

Alright I currently have 4 (yes 4) i7 920 (D0's) and of course 4 motherboards. I really only need 3 so curious which you would all recommend I keep and which should go.

Please see sig as well for full specs but here is the quick breakdown (and I can swap parts from any other machine so really I only care about CPU/MOBO combo that I should be keeping and should be getting rid of)

Thanks in advance folks :)

1) Gigabyte EX58-UD3R, i7 920 (DO)
2) Intel DX58SO, i7 920 (DO)
3) Foxconn BloodRage, i7 920 (DO)
4) ASUS P6X58D-E, i7 920 (DO)

My vote would be the Foxcom.

But I admit I don't know much about that bord.

I have the EVGA X58 SLI ( 920 C0/C1 ) and a ASUS X58 Rampage III Gini ( 920 ES )
the Gini is new i haven't plugged it in yet ES still in box

ShopRBC has the Rampage Gini at 225 $

I'd scrap the Intel board personally. Least amount of features IMO.

Alright thats sorta what I figured people would say just wanted to double check I got a pretty decent deal on it when I got it so I couldn't complain.

After the INTEL I presume it would be the BLOODRAGE/i7 combo eh?

Yup. Then it's pretty hard to say since the P6X and the UD3R are pretty sweet board.
