Ok I think I'm down to Asus Z68 board now and need to choose between two (unless anyone thinks diffrent please noooooooooo lol)

Asus P8Z68 V pro Gen 3......or the Deluxe version Gen 3 At the moment theres about £40 diffrance between the two

Im going to get a OCZ Vertex 3 Max IOPS 120 GB (SATA 6 for operating system and programmes) I will load all my OS and programes on this and use 2 x WD Caviar blacks Sata 3GBs for storage (I have them all ready so no point in changing to SATA 6GBs yet)

I dont do any gaming but do video and photo editing but not lots. Besides that my comp is used for music, iplayer, and is a genral hack glory fied Ebay and porn machine lol. My set up is listed below and I know you can do these comparison charts side by side of spec but what dose it mean in real terms the diffrance beteen the two ???? If I get the Deluxe version I dont think I will use there USB 3 box as may as well get one thats a card reader and USB 3 in one unit. Any real advice please ???



I will be using from my old comp for ether set up.......

Windows home premium 64 Bit
2 x Western Digital Caviar Black HDD (SATA 3 not the new 6) 1TB each being used for storage of pics, film, music etc
Cooler Master silent Pro 850 PSU
2 x LG blue ray burner/drives
Iiyama ProLite B2409HDS I will be adding a second one of these monitors
2 x Icy Box caddies (To easy remove storage drives for hiding when go away)



Z68 new parts as follows....

Intel Core i7 2600K
Asus P8Z68 Deluxe
Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600Mhz 16Gig of

One of the below cards again I'm geting conflicting advice about which one I should get (any help on that as well please )
Graphics card (NVIDIA) EVGA 1280MB GeForce GTX 570 HD
MSI 1280MB GeForce GTX 570 Twin Frozr III Power Edition OC NVIDIA Graphics Card
Asus 1280MB GeForce GTX 570 DirectCU II NVIDIA Graphics Card

OCZ Vertex 3 Max IOPS 120 GB (SATA 6 for operating system and programmes)
Cooler Master Cosmos 1100 s (to be stripped down and inside powder coated black)

CPU cooling unknown yet will also be a card reader/usb 3, SSD/HDD internal docking bay and poss. fan controller

buy a Mac?
(and I'm really not trying to be funny....but if you want itunes integration, do video editing....that's sort of Mac territory....if you just like building them, then the video card for those purposes is really going to be overkill no matter what you buy over $80 so just buy the one that you get a good deal on).

I'd go for the Pro if you want Z68..... read this to see if there's anything that compels you to...... personally, it's "6 of one half dozen of the other" to me

I'd use the Asus .... but this thread looks awfully familiar and I think I told ya that earlier today.

Gigabyte 570 OC Windorce 3x and MSI 570 TwinFrozr II both use the reference PCB design with 6 phase VRM (4 for GPU and 2 for memory)........ Asus GTX570 DirectCU II also has 8 phase VRMs (6 GPU and 2 memory)


For photo / video, I'd use ower CAS

2 x DVI means it has two DVI ports
Dual link DVI is required for 120 Hz monitors
