what do you guys think of this motherboard.

NCIX.com - Buy ASUS P6X58D-E X58 ATX LGA1366 3PCI-E16 PCI-E1 2PCI CrossFire SLI USB3.0 SATA 6GB/S Motherboard - P6X58D-E In Canada.

i can price match it to 230, and all the reviews i have read for it say it's amazing, and some of the ones i read used it with an i7 930 to show it's benchmarking capabilities, one review got to 4.2 easily, and the other went to 4.4 i think?

all i need to think of now is decent ram
Asus p6x58d-e / i7 930 @ 4ghz / G.skill 1600mhz 2x3gb 9-9-9-24 / Corsair TX750 / XFX HD 6850 1GB x2 @ 870/1070/ Coolermaster HAF 932 / Noctua nh12-up / Western Digital 500g Caviar black /Western Digital 1TB Caviar black 60Gb/ Seagate 7200.11 500g / OCZ Vertex 3 SSD / Samsung 2253BW / G5 / MX518 /

I'm pretty much only "experienced" with Evga X58 Boards, but I'm sure some other folks will chime in re: Asus and I think Martin is a Gigabyte guru....
