Hello,

I was about to put an order for this system

http://www.flipkart.com/wishlist/wish-9166

But, I need your guidence because of this ..

http://www.asrock.com/mb/compare.asp?SelectedModel=H87+...

the M model is micro ATX .. but supports sli/crossfire .. and is CHEAPER ..
Basically micro ATX just means the motherboard dimensions are smaller.. right?

Now, even though I am not planning to add any extra card for sli or crossfire in near future, its still cheaper with all other factors looking the same ..

so which one and why ?

The Micro-ATX board is a better deal for three reasons:

1. It is smaller, able to fit into a wider range of cases.

2. It supports Crossfire* officially (Does not officially support SLI) .

3. It is less money.

Choose the MPRO 4 - it is the better choice.

Thank you Sir .. detailed and pointwise =) .. rest of the build looks alright as $1000 gaming system?

It's a nice well-rounded build.

Spoiler
I always say this to everyone though - I would either go with the R9 270 for a little less money, or the GTX 760 for a little more.
The reason I suggest the R9-270 is because it is a 270x just with lower clock speeds out of the box. But every reviewer consistently points out that the card can easily overclock and surpass the stock 270x and even match an overclocked 270x. So if you can save money by getting the 270 I'd say do it!



EDIT: I had a look at the site that you use to shop for your PC components and I noticed the R9 270x you chose was cheaper than all others - even cheaper than the 270. So good choice!
