I have narrowed down my motherboard choice to two boards, but I'm having a hard time deciding between them. Here's my choices:

This one is more expensive, and it doesn't support 4way SLI

http://www.newegg.com/Product/.....6813128563
I'm leaning toward this one, since it's cheaper and seems to have more options.

But I'm interested in a few more opinions about this, since I don't want to upgrade it anytime soon.

Thanks in advance!

This is what X79 Chipset is designed for.

Let me study the Real Intel Specs a Bit more as the X79 MBs are full of "tricks" and bridge chips.

So it comes down to the C606 vs the X79? I'll be putting an i7-3820 on it by the way.

After a short trip across Google, I read that the C606 is the server version of the X79... I don't know if that is necessarily bad or...?

606 has SAS Ports which you don't have a need for.

I would choose this one in the LGA 2011 lineup as it has everything.
