*I would like a quiet PC.
*Would like to leave room for a 2nd gpu upgrade if budget allows.
* Thinking of getting Windows 7 Professional OEM, but might wait a bit and use XP for now.
most probably won't add one. But In my work gpu computing is big and I would like to give me the option of getting two nvidia with cuda capabilities in the future if necessary. Te mobo I choosed is only $20 over its brother GA-P55-UD3R, a small price I'm willing to pay.
I don't game.
