More about motherboard sli gtx 770
  1. Budget?
  2. We would probably need to see your build to see what processor you are using for the socket that the motherboard needs, also it would be nice to know budget and wants.
  3. Not sure 16x16 would gain you anything over 8x8 with 770s, could be wrong.....
  4. ASUS GTX770-DC2OC-2GD5 GeForce GTX770 2GB GDDR5 256-bit, DVI-I/DVI-D/ HDMI/DP PCI-Express 3.0 SLI ready Graphic Card OC-selected 1110MHz core (2 of these)
    Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64bit (OEM) System Builder DVD 1 Pack

    Western Digital WD1002FAEX Caviar Black 1 TB SATA III 7200 RPM 64 MB Cache Internal Desktop 3.5" Hard Drive

    Seasonic M12II-750 BRONZE ATX 750 Power Supply

    Intel Core i5-4670 3.4GHz 6MB Cache Quad-Core Desktop Processor BX80646I54670

    NZXT Source 210 ELITE Midtower Case with 3.0 USB - White

    NZXT Technologies KRAKEN X60 Premium 280MM Ultra Performance Liquid CPU Cooler RL-KRX60-01 Black

    Lite-On Super AllWrite 24X SATA DVD+/-RW Dual Layer Drive - Bulk - IHAS124-04 (Black)

    Budget: Staying underneath 1700 dollars and as low as I can. A mother board that dosent cost over 230 dollars would be ok Let me know if I forgot anything
  5. Asus Maximus IV Hero.
    Great board. Great for OCing but your 4670 can't do that. :(

    Your getting GTX 770 sli and not overclocking:heink:
  10. That case is not a good one, your putting really nice hardware in a crap case that is not built well and could be problematic for the life of your system, you want a cheap looking case that is built really well and will stand up over time perhaps take a look at the Fractal Design Arc Midi R2 for under $100, it will last through a few upgrades real well and supports 140mm fans all around.

    No need to OC your 770's as the ASUS DCII will rock hard for you at stock settings and stay plenty cool. The Hero is a real good MB that will deliver 8x8 on both cards, that is plenty to keep those GPU's fed with data, you would not see 1 FPS better with 16x16 on that Hero, keep in mind the 3rd x16 slot is PCIe 2.0 up to x4 (using the lanes from the x1 slots) and will not steal lanes from your graphics sub-system if you want to plug something into it.

    Just my 2-bits, hope it helps....
