    I really like the Gigabyte EX58-UD3R for non-expensive. And since the recent bios update enables SLI mode for it, it's probably the best bang for the buck in X58 boards out right now. It's overclocking ability slaughters the only other board in it's same price range, the MSI X58 Pro. But, you have to give up 2 memory slots for the UD3R, but then do you plan to need more then 6Gb? I certainly don't, not for a couple of years at least. By the time I need more then 6Gb, Core i7 will be so outdated that I'll have another platform by then anyway :p

    And several other rigs...

    GA-EX58-UD4P is also a great board if you need some more features

    The OP did state "preferably less expensive". You pointed out a great motherboard, don't get me wrong at all, but it simply doesn't qualify since it's the MOST expensive X58 motherboard Gigabyte makes.
