  1. no problems. You can use amd with a intel mobo or nvdia with and amd mobo if that is what you really are wondering.
  2. That mobo's too expensive for whatever you've got in mind, though. I recommend the $190 MSI Z68A-GD80 for high-end builds. It's great for anything but 3-way SLI/Xfire.
  3. @kajabla i was thinking about ordering off ibuypower and they only had asus, asrock or gigabyte boards
  4. Can you link me to the selection page? In my experience they'll usually have one or two decent boards at the right price.
  5. ASUS P8Z68-V LX -- Lucid Virtu Technology [-$235]
    Gigabyte GA-Z68AP-D3 [-$235]
    [SLI] ASRock Z68 Extreme4 Gen3 -- 2x PCI-E 3.0 x16 [-$178]
    [SLI] ASRock Fatal1ty Z68 Professional Gen3 -- 2x Gb LAN, 2x PCI-E 3.0 x16, 4x USB 3.0 [-$115]
    [SLI] ASUS P8Z68-V -- 3x PCI-E 2.0 x16, On-Board Bluetooth, Lucid Virtu Technology [-$148]
    [SLI] ASUS P8Z68-V Pro -- 3x PCI-E 2.0 x16, On-Board Bluetooth, Lucid Virtu Technology [-$131]
    [SLI] ASUS P8Z68 Deluxe -- 2x Gb LAN, 3x PCI-E x16, 4x USB 3.0, On-Board Bluetooth, Lucid Virtu Technology [-$64]
    [SLI] Gigabyte GA-Z68A-D3H-B3 -- 3x PCI-E 2.0 x16, Lucid Virtu Technology [-$214]
    [SLI] Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 -- Lucid Virtu Technology [-$178]
    [SLI] Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD4 [-$143]

    [3-Way SLI] Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD7-B3 -- 2x Gb LAN, 4x PCI-E 2.0 x16, 6x USB 3.0

    And if that isn't easy to read here's the link as well:

    You just need to scroll down until you see the motherboards

    Thanks again
  6. I think the Z68X-UD3H-B3 would be the best option. It's a solid board, $160 on the Egg.
  7. Alright thanks alot. I never complain if i can save money
  8. On that note, go 2500K if you were thinking of paying more. It's basically equivalent to the 2600K in gaming.

    I have seen that a lot around the forumns lol. But its gotten to the point where i set a budget of around 2000 and im probably going to be coming in around 200 less as it is so I figured why not for the i7.

    Also, how do i choose best answer since im a noob here?
  10. Well, basically all it'll get you is a couple of bins more on your maximum overclock. That might be worth it for two 7970s. If you feel like throwing the money around, go for it.
    BA should be a button next to each response that isn't yours, with a little medal thing on it.
