Yes, please enter me into this contest. Probably the most important feature on my wishlist for an Intel board is the latest 3rd Generation i7 support, if someone is going to upgrade, might as well make it the latest and greatest.
I have come to the conclusion that "FaceBook" should be renamed "FacePalm" :roll:

Yes, please enter me into this giveaway. As for my most important feature, I'd have to say an abundance of SATA-III ports. My current main system is an X58 based rig (Core i7 920 CPU/ASUS P6X58D-E motherboard)that has only 2 SATA-III ports, and my backup system is an AMD 880G system (Phenom II X6 1055T/Gigabyte 880GM-UD2H) with only SATA-II ports. With SSD's appearing to be the future of storage, I don't want a my SATA controller to be my bottleneck!

Lots of Sata ports, 8 or more if possible.

Reliable good sound. Optical toslink out is nice.

Built in quality gigabit ethernet, no craptastic realteks that won't hit 500mbit no matter which driver you use.

Good bios with proper tools and overclocking capabilities, also must post quickly.

Hi,

I would like to enter this contest. The most important feature I would say is basically the overall design in that how well laid out are the ports. Yes the design of the board is most important.

#1 thing I look for in a new motherboard is its price vs design ratio. I don't need all these fancy features that I'd probably never use. I just need the best motherboard with plenty of ports that supports the latest standards (USB 3.0, SATA 3, etc) to plug my variety of hardware into. But I also won't pay a obscene amount of money for it. It needs a perfect balance. (Best bang for your buck!)

I want to win, help a gamer out!

The best features are VIRTU MVP, and the 13 phase power design to help with overclocking.

Hmmm Biostar trying to hang with the big boys, eh?

I would like to enter the contest and I think the feature that I like about this motherboard for a build is the THX truStudio PRO technology.

Yes of course I want to enter the contest! For me it's important the stability of the motherboard. It has 13 phase power design and solid capacitors giving us more chances to get an higher and stable overclock! I appreciate USB3.0 too!

I would like to enter :)

What motherboard feature is most important to you for your next system build?

The most important feature for me is a motherboard that has more up to date features (ie: USB 3, etc...) so that I can take advantage of new and upcoming hardware. I try to avoid boards that are out of date technology wise.
