  1. The Gryphon is a great mobo, unless you have a need for a lot of other cards or more SATA ports than it has, I'd go with it, for the PSU I lean towards SeaSonic, with a single 770 I'd look at the SS-750KM3, it's currently the same price as their SS660 at the Egg right now, get the extra watts for free ;)

    hey
    thanks for psu help....
    but my 2 questions are still alive.
    1. what is differences between Gryphon and Sabertooth....?
    2. will Asus Maximus VI Gene work dam good for next least 5 years....?
    i put this question Bcs my 1st choice is ROG gene VI.
    one thing more,
    will more watts of psu hit my electricity bill..?
    i will use a UPS also.Bcs here electricity problem always , so i need a UPS also.
    thank you..
  3. Gene's a good mobo, not open to a lot of add ons, can compare the Gryphon and the Sabertooth side by side at the NewEgg site... 5 years depends on you and what you do as well as the rest of your components and whether or not you plan to stick with a rig and go through upgrades...If your a power user or a high end gamer, you prob won't be happy with it in maybe 2-3 years
  4. Gryphon is basically just the micro-atx sized version of a sabertooth from what I understood, although keep in mind that I believe you have to buy the thermal armor separately for the gryphon if you want that. Basically there will be more room/ports on the sabertooth as that's what it can fit. I decided to go with the sabertooth, but both would probably be a fine choice.

    They should all hopefully work good for the next 5 years, it's just that the gryphon/sabertooth are actually under warranty for that long. I have a 10+ year old dell dimension (i want to say 2400) that, while slow and annoying and still on xp, works more or less fine (so that would include the board. The TUF boards are supposedly built with durability/longevity involved while the ROG (gene) board is geared more towards performance..but regardless they should both hopefully last for a while.

    Agreed, a X750 is a superb PSU and the Gryphon is a great MATX board.

    yups i m a gamer. i m making this rig for playing games. i cannot upgrade anything in next 2 years. but after that i will upgrade like ssd, cpu fan to corsair h110i, currently stick with stock cooler and more ram.
    so you mean i have to go with Gryphon or Sabertooth...
    right..?
  7. That's what I'd do, but it's up to the individual (which is YOU ;) ) all we can do is offer suggestions

    Depends, what is the case, if you using an M-ATX case, go for the Gryphon, regular ATX, go Sabertooth, I have had the X58 version for almost 3 years and it is running strong, looks really good as well.

    it's a very nice rig ........
  11. Best answer
    You might be talking an extremely slight amount, the PSU only provides the power that is needed, little to no difference running a 850 on a rig and running a 550 on the samne rig with same settings

  17. Let us know how the build goes, and Thanks, Q6600 thanks to you also - your monikor is prob my favorite CPU of all time, still have a bunch of those out there running 3.6-4.0, wish we'd see something like that again ;)

    The evil upgrade bug landed me with the 920, which is a close second in my fav CPUs. 4.0 was a mission and then some to get to, I had a friend throw mine in his custom loop to get it there back in 08'. Now, to dig up that P45 board I left somewhere...
    PS: 2666MHz DDR3 RAM, what is this, DDR4 in disguise?
  19. Wish I could have afforded more, these cost a penny or two, wanted the 2800 but think it was $1,700 then, they are sweet though !
  20. yea sure .
    i will update post when i brought it.
    and
    thanks a lot friends ....
    yes , why ddr4 is coming so fastly in the ground...?
  21. Late, late this year maybe, prob 1st quarter of 2014
  22. will there any benefits of this ddr4 memory....?
    if yes, then how much...?

    I have a contact in AMD-land (sarinaide) that might be able to get some 2800 for you, at the right price, he can't get past DDR3-2300 with his A10-6800K :evil: @OP, DDR4 will likely come in the next AMD and Intel processor generations, it will be a slow transition, and latency will\should be an abomination at first, from then (3-4 years), it will mature like DDR3 is today.
