Alright so this is my first post and lookin for some help. Im in the process of making my first rig mainly for gaming/home theater purposes. Ive decided to go with the 3770k ivy bridge for overclocking, gtx 670 or 680 (might go sli eventually), 16Gb (4 x 4Gb) RAM, blue ray drive and mayb a sound card. I wouldnt imagine anything else is important. So im basically looking for the best z77 motherboard for this set up. I would prefer that it had wifi on it. Price is not an issue so im open for anything. So if anyone could help me out i would greatly appreciate it.
Which one -- HTPC or Gaming?? They're totally different builds. An HTPC it's all about a "Quite PC" and Gaming including OC'ing it'll be (too) noisy. So unless you want to spend a lot on custom water cooling with lots of radiators and expensive fans and fan controls IMO one or the other or (2) separate PC's.
