I'm leaning towards the GIGABYTE GA-EX58-UD5 LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard. But just like the ASUS P6T board, it has JMB322 sata chips to extend the number of sata ports to 8 (P6T) or 10 (UD5).
However, i'm a little confused as to whether these JMB322 sata ports act just like the Intel ICH10R chip sata ports with each port providing 3gb/s?
In other words.... do the ICH10R and JMB322 ports function the same?
For all essential purposes, yes, they function similarly.
