So I'm slowly finishing up my build. Unfortunately, it includes a 2560x1440 monitor, so I'm torn between 2 different paths;
1. ASRock Pro4 ($150) with 1 good GPU (2GB+), not sure yet. Save some money on a PSU, get a 650W maybe, save some money on electricity over the long-run (lol?!)
2. BIOSTAR TZ77XE3 ($140) - surprisingly cheaper, even though it has 2x pci-e 3.0. Then get an SLI solution, 850W PSU.
Ideas/suggestions which path to go?
Also, why is the ASRock Extreme4 so expensive ($180) compared to Biostar's at $140, I see almost identical features. If anything, I might as well get the $140 biostar, then have the option to go SLI down the road (unlikely though).
Not planning on using 2800 Ram.
Not planning on using any more than 2 Sata 6gb/s, nor RAID.
I didn't see a difference in USB3.0's..
Again, not planning on using any of those controllers,
And the size? What? They're both ATX no?
And I would much rather prefer 1 extra PCI-E slot than not.. Do you know if there are any other boards that are of equal or better quality at that price level?
Thanks for the details and help btw
