You might want to change your motherboard to one with a P55 chipset instead of H55. Gigabyte UD3 is a good one if you don't require a lot
Can you give me some reasons why? I had the hardest time choosing the motherboard and am still not 100%.
Has 2 x 3.0 USB ports which could come in handy in the future especially if it replaces e-Sata one day.
Has external sata which I need for my external HHD enclosure (Antec MX1).
Has onboard graphics which could come in handy for a few days if I sell and update my video card.
Second PCI x16 slot can only run at 4x which defeats the purpose of ever doing Crossfire for me.
Is mATX form factor but I dont see a difference other than some PCI slots which I dont need.
Has 2oz of copper PCB design.
Second PCIe x16 probably runs at 8x.
ATX form factor (does it matter?)
No USB 3.0
No onboard graphics (which isnt a big concern)
No eSATA on rear panel.
If someone has some good reasons for me to choose a P55 Id love to hear. Also Im not planning on doing RAID. Im ordering tomorrow. So far only my i5 750 was in stock so I picked it up. Its sexy!!
