  1. If you are planning to do some extreme OC then go with Asus Maximus VI Hero :D
  2. Best answer
    Solid Build. 10/10

    SSD for windows, is the only thing I would add, if not needed fine too.
  3. Thanks for both your comments!
    However I have already gone over my budget by like £250 so I can't afford an ssd right now but it'll definitely be the 1st upgrade I get!
    And I would buy that mobo if I had the £, but it would be an extra £40+ and as I'm not planning to do massive overclocking then it shouldn't matter :) however I was previously looking at the asus gryphon, but decided not to go for it as its a mini atx and heard the msi board was really good.
  4. Looks solid. However I would check out a GTX 770. I don't trust the R9 series. Not yet, at least. Best of luck.
