    It is a fine board if you are not planning on dual GPU's. If you are planning dual GPU's this AsRock would be an option http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157293

    i would have took this one if it wasnt arround 180 in newegg.ca, but no i dont really plan to dual GPu, but im not sure what il do in 3/4 years when ill have to change/update video card, will the new 870 (hehe) will be better choice or dual 670... or maybe hole new system will be needed
  4. I only use single cards and try to update card every other or third generation. With that in mind the Gigabyte board you listed would suite me fine.

  7. My boards of choice are:

    Asus P877 WS for quad x8 SLI or dual x16 SLI $340
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131822

    Asus Z77 Sabertooth $240 heavily overclocked boxes or workstation builds
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131821

    Asus P8Z77 Pro $220 overclocked boxes
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131819

    ASUS P8Z77-V - $190 moderate budget builds
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131820

    About 5/6 of the builds I do are designed for SLI/CF either from the outset or for near term upgrade. It's hard to make a case for a single card build in this day and age given the performance per dollar figures. For example.....did a lot of pre and post X-Mas builds and given the choice of one 580 for $500 and 616 fps.....and $410 for two 900 Mhz 560 Ti's @ 862 fps, it's generally an easy decision for the user. The potential "add 2nd 580 later" choice used to hold me and many people back but when ya consider that that the $1000 investment gave ya just 10% more fps than the $410 bought ya, it doesn't hold the interest that it did in past years when the difference was greater.

    thanks, i found ASUS P8Z77-V LK for 130, same price than the gigabyte but with 2x pcix16 3.0, no worry about later that way, but can i overclock a little with it planning to get my i5-3.4 to 4.0-4.2
