Hi,
Please give me some advice on choosing my motherboard. I have decided following facts

    Processor i7 4930K
    not to overclock
    single VGA.[GeForce GTX 760(Asus)]. no any plan for multiple VGAs
    32GB Ram. Cosair or GSkill 8GB*4
    Use a SSD


I'm thinking of following mother boards.
Asus RAMPAGE IV EXTREME
Asus P9X79 PRO
Asus P9X79 LE
I'm thinking of lower cost, maximum use from my single VGA and processor.
please can you help me to decide which mobo best suites my requirements.

Thanks in advance

What type of work are you doing? I'd grab the LE board since its 100 to 200 bucks less than the others.

I'm going to do some gaming, run lot of virtual machines and virtual routers, GPU programming.
I'll not be doing any 3D graphics.

I want to know what are the extra features in rampage and pro mobo than LE. In some other forum I read some of they have multi VGA capability which I don't need. I just want to get clarified on this.

Those advanced stuff you're paying for is usually for Quad GPU support, better overclockability, and cooling for the board.

Now may I ask why you're going with such high end components? Just curious.


Hi,
Asus p9x79 LE
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Asus LE mobo is just 10$ expensive than Asrock board. But what features does that have over Asus mobo? and I'm planning to get a Asus VGA. So I assume Asus mobo+ Asus vga will be a better design comparing to Asrock mobo + Asus vga.

Can you suggest me a mobo with less multi GPU support, less overclockability.
Cooling for the board is positive for me.

I have suggested one earlier, it's a lot cheaper and will get the job done.
