EVGA FTW with Lotes socket :) Or you can even get thte 300 version if you've got that much money to spare. Did u get a set of the 7-7-7 ripjaws?? They were all sold old when I ordered mine so had to get the 7-8-7 ones. :P

I wouldnt spend $300 on a P55 board, you can get a great board for alot less. EVGA FTW, ASUS P7P55D Pro, Giga UD4P (or higher), all great boards. If you really want the very top end board then you can go Classified or Max III. Depends what you need it to do I guess.
