Hi Guys,

I have i7 950 and planing to ocing 4.2 with air cooling or higher with water cooling.

I'm looking for new mobo and I was looking at ASUS R3E or EVGA E770. After reading many reviews, I decided to go with EVGA. But now, I'm stuck with E770 or E762.

I don't need 4-Way SLI. However, I found that E762 is $70 cheaper ($280 after $100 rebate) than E770 ($350 after $20 rebate).

I like SATA 6G and USB3.0 features of E770 but are they worth to pay $70 more for?

I have i7 920 sitting in the box and trying to put this back into my current mobo and give to someone. So, I need new mobo but can't decide which one should I go with.

I'm also planning to get second GTX 460 for SLI and water cooling my pc.

Please help. lol

My current system is

HAF X
i7 950 @ 4.0GHz with Venomous-X Black
X58A UD3R Rev. 2.0
EVGA GTX 460 SC EE
Corsair Dominator 6GB
Corsair 850W PSU

Thanks in advance

Best solution

Well that depends on you, if you want usb 3.0, but thats quite a difference in price.
