So it's been about 4-5 years since my last build and it is definatly time for a new system. However, the more I am trying to research which direction to go the more I get confused with what to go with. I dont have a set direction to go with but below are a few things I am keeping in consideration when looking for the correct motherboard.
Well you dont need the ethernet cards since all modern boards have onboard. But I guess you still need the wireless one. All the 780i/790i boards have 2 PCI slots, but they are below the PCIe slots, which means SLi could be an issue in the future as far as the 2nd card is concerned.
**EDIT** Actually screw the above link. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... . This is the only Nvidia chipset board worth buying due to its price. And unlike the other 750i boards this one is full speed 16/16 SLI. And it has that top PCIe1x slot I mentioned for a new wireless card.
