Asus P8Z77-V-LK vs. P8Z77-V-PRO

So starting my first ever custom build, just looking for a mid range gaming comp. what i have so far.

i5-3570k
ASUS RADEON HD 7870 2GB GDDR5
CORSAIR VEGEANCE CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9
CORSAIR HX 750
COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 plus
CRUCIAL M4 - 128GB

P8Z77-V-LK $144.99 ($20 MIR)
OR
P8Z77-V-PRO $199.99

so pretty new and little behind on the tech info, but what i did gather was, these two boards where virtually the same except that the LK doesnt come with wifi.

i dont need wifi, i just need it to work, and be able to support sli/crossfire in the future which i think both do

any reason why i shouldnt go with the V-LK and save $70?

--------------------------------------------------------

side note, i know wrong forum. corsair vegeance c8 vs c9, about $10 difference, c9 being cheaper, i heard get the c8, would that be the ideal choice?

  1. Yes the V-LK would be the one to get and it will support SLI and is much cheaper so you'll save a lot. The C8 would be the lower timmings so that makes it the better ram choice , the C9 isn't all that bad and will do a good job so you can go with either one.
  2. It goes like this


    P8Z77-V LK = 4 + 1 + 1


    P8Z77-V LE = 6 + 2


    P8Z77-V = 8 + 4


    P8Z77-V Pro = 12 + 4


    P8Z77-V Deluxe = 16 + 4


    I imagine that the LK is probably not the best overclocker
    here is a site that compares all the Asus P8Z77 lineup:

  3. I looked at the lineup of the asus boards and i just want to know if a 6+2 phase is better or if a 4+1+1 is better for distributing low heat and safer power distribution.?
  4. I know that,but the WIFI is not good
