Hi,

I'm looking for a good mobo for a multi-card set up.
Currently looking at Gigabyte G1 Sniper3, ASRock extreme9 and EVGA ftw.

These are the only z77 boards that I've seen can run 4-way sli/xfire.
Just want to discuss which would be best to get.

The only (4) Z77's with the PLX chipset to run 4-WAY SLI, and of those I prefer the ASUS P8Z77 WS.
ASUS P8Z77 WS - http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_1155/P8Z7...
Gigabyte G1.Sniper 3 - http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=...
EVGA Z77 FTW - http://www.evga.com/products/moreinfo.asp?pn=151-IB-E69...
ASRock Z77 Extreme9 - http://www.asrock.com/mb/overview.asp?Model=Z77%20Extre...

Otherwise you could get any Z77 supporting SLI and two (2) GTX 690. IF you're looking at 4-WAY then it only makes sense for multiple HD+ monitors and then I'd stick to GTX 600 series with 4GB of vRAM.

What features does the p8z77 WS have that makes it better? Or is it just the brand?
I haven't really noticed any differences between boards and all seem to be scarce.

Since LGA 1366 ASUS has has the least problems and is very reliable. Check the reviews.
