My System Specs


So I think I'll be going with the x3440/p55 route. If I ever want to do bigadv folding I can always add in another 4gb later.
Now as for a choice of motherboard, I'm looking at the MSI GD65 since it's only $155 at the moment. However I'm debating whether or not I'll need USB3.0 in the future. From the other linked thread the general consensus is that 6gbps sata is pretty useless at the moment? My other choices of motherboard is the p7p55d-e pro for $45 more. Is the added bonus of usb3.0/sata worth it in the long run from me having to go out and buy a expansion card in the future?
