Q - Why WiFi? You can accomplish the same thing with a 'wired' solution which is considerably better. The only stuff I want in my house on WiFi are Notebooks, Phones and Tablets and then running off the Router + WiFi and if needed multiple Access Points. I don't even want my BR Players on WiFi -- it's too slow and inconsistent -- I hate watching a NetFlix move just to have it 'pause' while it 'buffers' ruining the mood.

Now IF you cannot get a 'CAT-5e/6' cabling then use PowerLine - http://www.youtube.com/user/NCIXcom/videos?query=PowerL...

hey man , if you are agood overclocker , then , choose asus p8z77 deluxe
gigabyte is a *** for overclocking but only more Ridiculous features that you dont use , the real defference between boards is overclocking ability and asus is the only company that broke records with its aweasome boards

My experience with Gigabyte in the forums:

LGA 1156 = mixed bag
LGA 1366 = bad except UD7 & UD9 which were good
AM3 = good
LGA 1155:
P67 and Z68 = initially very bad (horrible bad batches UD3, UD4 & UD5) then okay
AM3+ = good
LGA 2011 = very bad with recalls even through the UD7 lines
LGA 1155:
Z77 = knock on wood 'seems' good

Now when I see that kind of track record it's understandably tough for me playing the odds to place my rep on Gigabyte. Overclocking doesn't even ring a bell when my primary concern is 'will the MOBO fail?'

Gigabyte and overclocking - typically the UD5 and UD7 or higher lines though the last UD9 was LGA 1366.
