I am doing the beginning of my research on my $2000-2500 build, i will without reasonable doubt be using 780 in Sli and have to also have WiFi... I do not think these motherboards are going to allow me to also add a PCI wireless card with both 780 in place.

In your opinion is a pci wireless card necessary or can i get away with a USB dongle?

Which motherboard is a better solution for this? Anything else anyone can suggest for around $200 give or take

USB wireless works great (have one myself instead of pci)

Both are good boards - however, if you have the $ to spend then go for the asus (the maximums is a solid board).

The Hero, without a doubt, did 20 Haswell builds before deciding on it for my build, they were a variety of mid/high Asus, Rock and GB mobos, I myself won't touch MSI for builds, poor QC and support.... see sig for mine.... On wireless, I myself prefer a USB adapter, the PCI cards have antenna out the back where you generally find all your power cables which can dirupt the signal

You are awesome thank you, any good recommendations for a discreet case with alot of pre-installed fans, or a case that is going to provide enough airflow for sli 780 or cf 290x. I am so excited to get my build underway!

I'd look at the HAF cases, either the 912 or 922 Mid-Tower should work fine and are reasonable
