GIGABYTE is offering this motherboard as an affordable X58 motherboard with USB 3.0 support. The board offers a good feature set with only the SATA 6 Gb/second ports missing to make it really outstanding, but the ability to rapidly charge your cell phone compared to using standard USB ports is a definite plus feature to be had. The X58-USB3 board is available for $179 on Newegg, making it a definite excellent choice as one of the least expensive X58 boards on the market today. You get all of the performance and compatibility of the X58 chipset without losing high end features like 3-way SLI or Crossfire, overall not a bad candidate for the X58 arena, especially if you are on a budget.
