Hi,

I don't know if all the slots are compatible so I need a motherboard that can hold all of them. Can you guys please tell me if it will all fit in the Antec Fusion Remote MAX.

Specs

Corsair CML8GX3M2A1600C9 8GB (2x4GB) Vengeance $89.00
Intel Core i5 2500K $215.00
EVGA GeForce GTX 570 HD $359.00
Antec Fusion Remote MAX $225.00
ASUS Xonar HDAV1.3 $185.00
Avermedia AVerTV CaptureHD Dual Hybrid PCIE $109.00
Western Digital Green 3TB WD30EZRX $189.00
OCZ Agility 3 60GB SSD 2.5" $129.00
Corsair TX-650 V2 Power Supply $115.00
Samsung SH-B123A 12X Blu-ray DVD Combo Drive $89.00
ASUS P8Z68-DELUXE Motherboard $325.00

Sub-Total: $2029.00


Also, which motherboard is overall better in features, performance, reliability, etc.


ASUS P8Z68-DELUXE Motherboard- http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?...ducts_id=17497
Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD5 Motherboard - http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?...ducts_id=18072
ASRock Z68 Fatal1ty Professional Gen3 - http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?...ducts_id=17937

All around the same price, so price is definitely not an issue in this one. So out of these three, no other recommendations please

Also, I know this is the wrong place to post this, but I have heard that the Corsair PSU I chose may be a bit loud. Does anyway have any recommendations for a reliable, good quality and quiet PSU?

Thanks A Lot!

I would go with Silverstone PSU's they are solid, Quiet and they have a short cable set available.

you have to remove the divider section of the central HDD chamber to fit the EVGA 570 (its 10.5 inches long)

I vote for the Gigabyte MB
