    The b75 board is more than adequate for a non overclocker; if you want more zip in your system, at some point, get an ssd, especially if your main files take up around 100 gb; the 120 gb ssd's are going for around $80 now.

    i am planning to get big ssd .. my problem is to get b75 asus or gigabyte i put the links...... and one thing that made me confused that when i put a pci under my vga card it get so hot , and the gigabyte b75m (that is available in my country) has pci so close to the pci express
  3. Good point, but do you really need the pci slot? Pci is almost a dead interface, unless you mean pci-e 1.0.

    PCI slot (for sound card or wifi card) not the small one ....maybe the solution is pci cable but i don't prefer it anyways ... and keep in mind gigabyte is cheaper here
