Comments, Questions & Reviews:
Between the two by Dave
Hey I don't know if you guys have the mobo but between this badboy and the G1 Sniper 3 (Gigabyte) which would you say is better overall? Noticed the Sniper goes for about Â£350 generally on the web whilst this is much cheaper, stuck between the two :(
Well the G1 board is designed for the 1366 socket which is the first gen i7's etc accordin to gigabytes web specs. out of the two i would go with this board supports 2nd gen intel, newer chip set, supports more RAM at quad channel and is much better for overclocking. see below for a direct comparison
Spec by Kez
I dont know much on motherboards but would this be a good base for a high spec gaming pc?
yes this is a high end motherboard , this is a motherboard for intel`s new sandybridge cpus (sandybridge extreme cpus)
It would, with either an i7-3960 or an i7-3930 CPU this would be a monster. Actually it might well be overkill, depending on your budget it might be wiser to go for an i5-2500K an an 1155 chipset motherboard, and then spend the difference on your graphics card(s), since most games will bottleneck a graphics card before even getting close to running these newest i7 CPUs at full load. But if you want the most powerful consumer computing platform money can buy right now, the new i7's and a Socket 2011 motherboard are certainly it.
