I'm building a gaming desktop that will also be used for mining. I've picked up 3x 7950s for the GPUs, and will be going with an Intel i5 for the CPU.

I've done a lot of searching here, but all of the recommendations are for cheap boards being used for mining-only rigs.

Which motherboards are good for both "power user/gamer" use and mining use?

any z77 board can hold 3 video cards easily

If you still have extra money to burn, go for asus rog http://rog.asus.com/

your case is more important than the mobo. you will need a lot of fans to keep 3 7950 cool. Grin

gigabyte with 3 fans on the 7950 is the way to go then.
