Default New Asus P8Z77-Pro Mobo Wow

I was just checking out the Asus Z77 P8Z77-VPro, and it has new feature called "WiFi Go!"

"ASUS Wi-Fi GO! makes enjoying home entertainment easier than ever! Exclusive Wi-Fi functions provide DLNA streaming so you can enjoy a home theater PC, while also providing remote access to your PC with a smart device. ASUS Wi-Fi GO! leads the market by integrating Wi-Fi connectivity, DLNA access and all smart devices with a one-stop utility for a futuristic connected lifestyle."
"Wi-Fi hotspot setup for convenience:quickly set up and connect anywhere at home thanks to instant soft access point and device detection. Build your network without an extra router!"
"Remote Desktop</strong>: access your PC from a tablet? No sweat! Control your PC in real-time from a mobile device for complete comfort. This function brings notebook-like convenience, by creating a virtual remote desktop, offering portable access to your data in desktop with a smartphone or pad"

This seems like a dream if it works correctly....I mean a mobile hotspot, DLNA WiFi, control the PC from a tablet. seems too good to be true?

check it out here:

My System Specs

Default

The control part is pretty well just the obvious step from the ROG connect software which allowed external control by a second PC connected via USB. The rest of it.... well, if it can be done with a sub-$100 media box which includes a fairly expensive HDD, I see no reason why they couldn't get it to work on a motherboard.......

TY. I would have never thunk it, but the baord seems to be a great value @ $225, if this is truly the expected street price. It would be nice to be in bed with a tablet, access my movies/TV shows on my hard drive and send them to a DLNA TV or tablet, or even wired to TV. This is new to me, I knew it existed but was the other half of my reasoning to building a new rig, so I will 80% for sure buy this board. This being said, I'm sure an external NAS solution would be a better solution, but for a beginner in this realm, its nice not spend cash into implementing it.

On the other hand, The fact that the Pro/Deluxe Asus Z77 boards have 2 PCI-E 3.0 slots but you can't use two cards @ x16 bandwidth bothers me. It couldn't have been too difficult to make at least one model of board able to use x16 in both PCI-E 3 slots in SLI. It boggles the mind, there must be a reason why no board has it. When they make a RoG Z77 board, if they make, I'm sure that will have dual x16 SLI capabilities. Right now I have no plans for SLI, but there may come day when I decide to get 2 more Dell U2412M's for 5760x1200 gaming, If I had the money I would have bought 3 of the Dell's today instead of 1. I'm sure a single GTX680 can manage 5760x1200 in some games, probably no ultra settings, but I will have to look into.

It would be ideal to have a seperate HTPC box, but I'm sure I could skate by this one build based on my needs and budget
