^^^^ what about this gigabyte board...is 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 - http://ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=42714
CPU - http://ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=42499
HSF - http://ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=41337
RAM - http://ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=42746
PSU - http://ncix.com/products/index.php?s...9&promoid=1115
HDD - http://ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=34286
ODD - http://ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=45667
Case - http://ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=41135
OS - http://ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=45271

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 here......new 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"....
