Any Problems?

Hi there,


This is a great board GIGABYTE GA-Z68XP-UD4, great overclocker loaded with latest features.

The other board is discontinued. Slightly better overclocker.

2 x PCI Express 2.0 x16 slots (x16, x8)
1 x PCI Express 2.0 x16 slot, running at x4 (PCIEX4)
vs
2 x PCI Express 2.0 x16 (x16, x8)

So, if u need to have PCI Express 2.0 2 x16 this does not have it.

GA-Z68X-UD5-B3 have more conectivity , more USB ports and PCIE slots. UD4 is a good board is a good option for new build.

I guess GA-Z68XP-UD4 is ok, As i cannot get the other one.

They are going to come up with an upgraded revision of that mobo, as that one was 1.0

UD4 is great board.

It will OC to 4.5GHz without any hick up and the Z68 will not run slow at all.

Thanx, That will be it for me then...
Hope It will last Long. :-)
One more Thing, Why do people Go for Branded PSU's? whereas Normal ones are much cheap? Can anyone explain me pls?
I think i will need 700-750 W power, Or would I? I Saw many posts saying GTX 560 ti would require 500 W minimum , so what is your call?

Saw Corsair one, But its Costly for me.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Zebronic one

http://www.lanoscomputers.com/p/401/zebronics-700w-smps

For 78$ (3870 INR)

But then Again, Whats the Difference that local ones Lack? It would be Helpful for me.
Thank you

Quality PSU does not overheat, has all kind of overvoltage protections, higher industry standards than average ones.

If u have voltage just right, it will not last, because there is no reserve. 1 year of intensive use and it goes...
