well, it's definitely an upgrade for you

but why are you buying this mobo? what will you use it for? if overclocking, what's your current overclock and voltage?

Well, my actual clock is @4.2ghz.

My setup is:

i7 3770k
Asus p8z77-m
gtx 780
16gb ram 4x4 1600mhz
PSU: m2 Silent Pro 720W CM


My idea is to perform an SLI (780) at the end of next year.. and of course OC (dont have WC) just this one:

EVGA SUPERCLOCK:

....

what do u think ??..

I would like to change my proccesor, but dont have enough money.. and my i7 3770k, rulez.. there almost no change.. compared to 4770k for example..

Thanks a lot!!!

well, the new board would give you the extra pCIe 3.0 lanes needed to pull off SLI with 780s.

otherwise, the rog line is made of solid build quality, and looks nice, but really won't do much more for you in terms of OC capabilities on air. so basically you're paying for those extra PCIe 3.0 lanes. if that's worth it to you, then go for it

imo yes it's better than sabertooth, I think that thermal armor is too gimmicky

I think this will be a suitable MB for you :

PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

Motherboard: ASRock Z77 Extreme4 ATX LGA1155 Motherboard ($99.99 @ Newegg)
Total: $99.99
(Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available.)
(Generated by PCPartPicker 2013-11-12 14:28 EST-0500)

Measured power consumption single GeForce GTX 780.
1.System in IDLE = 119W
2.System Wattage with GPU in FULL Stress = 340W
3.Difference (GPU load) = 221W
4.Add average IDLE wattage ~10W
5.Subjective obtained GPU power consumption = ~ 231 Watts

GeForce GTX 780 2-way SLI - On your average system the cards require you to have a 800 Watt power supply unit as minimum.

So you have to upgrade the PSU for future SLI and OC.

GeForce GTX 780 - requires 42A and a 600W PSU minimum

Thank you both for your replies!. yes i know. actually i am waiting for next week to get my new Seasonic 850W 80 plus Gold.

This mobo asrock looks awesome!! but is too expensive here.. in Argentina.. and is out of stock.. unfortunately...

I think i will get this formula V.. and thats it. in terms of mobo and processor.. for the next 2 years.. (no bottleneck) in games i guess :D

That's a good choice of PSU. And your CPU rocks. Keep us posted on how the new system goes. Good luck.
