I'm in the process of building a new system for entertainment purpose(gaming, movies, photoshop, etc...)
Can someone please provide some feedback on this build?
Or point out if anything is not compatible?
My budget is around $1000 - $1100 (without the monitor)
This is what I came up with after 2 days of intense research:
Yes it is, and good as long as you are not going to crossfire (use a second 6970). It's a micro-ATX board. Doesn't say that clearly in the description.
I'm completely blind when it comes to hardware so I have one dumb question...
What is micro-atx board have to do with crossfire technology? By the description of the mobotherboard, it seems like it will support crossfire.
Aside from the different form factors we have talked about and what it says there:
More voltage regulation and overclocking control. Possibly higher overclocks as a result. Bluetooth. Does NOT have true crossfire or SLI support, despite what it may say.
True CF/SLI support, but a crowded board. Dual slot GPUs would be pushed up against each other causing hotter temps. Would be a great LAN party board as it would fit in a smaller case and would be ideal for two narrower cards. For instance two of these: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
