IMO, it's never worth it to spend $500 on a motherboard.

This is the motherboard in my rig, and, even with the cost of my X-Fi thrown in, it was less than half what that ASUS is, and with almost as many features. I won't miss the ones it doesn't have.

At this point, you really should be looking at Sandy Bridge and Z68, however. X58 is obsolete. Its true replacement is due to come out any time now, and it's going to be expensive as hell.

Fix their home team score on the board to the debt clock, they can win every game 17,000,000,000,000 to 24. Losing team gets taxed by the IRS 100%, then droned."
