I am buying a new computer and I need some advice.
When I buy new computers i just usually get the best motherboard (and ram) that will last for the next few years, migrate whatever i can from my old computer, and upgrade other components as the time passes.
From reading a few articles and threads i came to the conclusion that the 1155 socket would be the best for me since it is just getting started so i decided on the i3-2120 processor(it will do for now but i will upgrade it with a quad core probably). The only components that i need now are the motherboard and ram which i want to be high end.
What i need from the motherboard is reliability and performance(since i will stick with it for a few years) and the possibility of upgrading it (the components on it) as long as i can. Also it needs to have crossfire capability (not just 2 slots but two well placed slots that will allow me to put 2 big cards like the 6990 in crossfire).
I have been looking at some gigabyte boards and the GA-Z68X-UD7-B3 seems like it has everything i want but it is just too expensive. Do any of the other cards (they have like 10 z68 cards) fulfill my requirements?
Thank you in advance for the replies!
