    I am currently in a dilemma. I have won two motherboards on online competitions, and I don't know which one to keep for my rig. Currently I am running an Asus Maximus Formula (flashed to a Rampage). I won a Asrock P45R2000-WiFi about a month ago, and I recently won a Gigabyte GA-EP45-DS5. My dilemma is which two should I part with?

    i say you keep both, and build TWO systems out of them.

    but, if you want to part with one, i'd part with the ASRock board over the Gigabyte board.

    reasoning: simply because the ASRock board uses lesser quality components on their products.

    I agree with CDs i had A Gigabyte board before my current board and it was stable as hell i never had a single problem with it. But then again am not much of a tech person so my opinion might not be so valuable, lol;)

    The EP45-DS5 is a significantly better board
