My System Specs


I know you like Evga. will not blame you they are very good. but have a look at the Maximus III Formula.
^^^^ what about this gigabyte the sata 3 n usb 3 worth it or are their other "concerns" with this board?

Mark - that Asus is a sweet looking Board with some very cool features indeed, but think I want to "shave" the cost of this potential build a tad.

So anyhow, playing around with another potential future build...gotta mull it over, but came up with this:
Mobo -
Case -
OS -

Kicks in at around $1275 without Pricematcing anything, could likely save $150v - $200 Pricematching.

I would throw my spare Vertex 120GB SSD and either one or both of my GTX 280's in Fermi in my Primary......
Just not sure if the Gigabyte Board wirth SATA 3 / USB 3 is a etter way to o or "over-hyped"....

Firestrike Extreme: 21.452
MARK 11: 32.530

Introducing me n my OCD to Watercooling, is like taking an Alcoholic to an "all you can drink" Beach Bar in Mexico
