This processor is the top of the line and that motherboard supports the latest features on the market which are USB3.0 and SATA3. Plus this motherboard supports 2-Way/3-Way ATI CrossFireX/NVIDIA SLI technology.

Are you willing to tweak and clock it to make it the "best" or are you just looking for something out of the box plug n play?

I did see a half-a-grand quad sli motherboard if that's what you want ;) otherwise some more specific hints as to what you'll be doing with it would help.
