    Default Gigabyte GA-P55-UD3R vs MSI P55-GD65

    Hi all,
    I plan to purchase new PC

    CPU i5 750 2.66GB
    Ram Samsung DDR3 2GB x2
    Vga : Gigabyte DT250 1GB
    and I wonder between two above mainboards.
    at first I prefer the GIGA but I've just read this article:
    Warning: These P55 motherboards will cripple your Crossfire/SLI performance | Hardware Revolution

    What is your recommendation??

    Neither in fact, & using 2 of those videocards wouldn't bring on a bottleneck (2x 4870 X2's indeed would).

    MSI GD65 is better for its stability and cool oc-genie features. Baby orange GIGABYTE board is suitable for sissy

    At the price of the P55-GD65 why not go one step up and get the P55-UD4P. It's an idea. It does not have much over the UD3R but it does have SLI and Crossfire. It's a good board for about the same price.
