This review is from: ASUS P8C WS LGA 1155 Intel C216 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Supports Ivy Bridge Xeons, Dual Intel Gigabit NICs, Can use regular (non-registered, non-ECC) or ECC (non-registered RAM), dual PCIe 3.0 x16 slots for workstation graphics cards
Other Thoughts: This is a true WORKSTATION board. I run a Xeon E3-1240 V2 Ivy Bridge with 32 GB of RAM and everything has been very stable running Linux with a permanent Windows 7 VM. You really should look at something else for gaming, I don't understand all the people trying to build a gaming PC with this motherboard. Asus makes a great line of gaming motherboards, take a look at those.
Remember that to use the onboard video ports you must get an Intel processor with the integrated graphics.
Thank you Asus for using the Intel NICs, they are much better that the Realtek ones.
