I would look at the ASUS Maximus V FORMULA (Z77) + i5-3570K, it offers better sound and some added features. If getting a Corsair 650D then add this adapter to the purchase -> http://www.amazon.com/HDE-Port-USB-Female-Cable/dp/B006... /edit - I would look at either the Corsair TX/HX/AX series or SeaSonic PSU's. For a few bucks more the Corsair H100. | Report abuse Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Motherboards>Which motherboard to buy> Related ressources: ForumWhich motherboard to buy ?
