im concidering a new motherboard with 8 sata ports, and looking for one with spesified things gone
it should have no IDE-connection(thing should have been gone a long time ago.)
the old mouse and keyboard dead and gone USB only
usefull and effective placements of PCIe (my graphic-card blocks two perfectively usefull ones, angers me as hell and rest is used or occupied by other things.
and also compatible with all the things below(f.eks heatsink not blocking ram and so on)
i dont need to mention a budgetlimit, because at the moment i have the money to spend.
this my build at the moment:
windows 7 Pro 64bit SP1
Corsair SSD Force Series 3, 120GB 2.5"
Western Digital® Desktop Black 1TB x1
Western Digital Caviar® Green? 2TB x3
Nvidia Geforce GTX 480(Zalman VF3000F GTX480 GPU-heatsink)
ASUS Xonar D2X/XDT, 7.1 channel
Corsair A70 CPU heatsink
ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3
AMD phenom II X6 1055T processor 2.80GHz
Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600MHz 8GB CL8
Fractal design XL
it is very nice yes, but only problem i will get with it is the 8-pin CPU powerconnector
it will be to close too the fan at the top of the factal design XL it not placed horizontaly it is tilted in an angle
well i can change to another fan with less thickness, anyway i know i can deal with it.
another thing is the placement of the PCI Express x1 is to close to the upper PCI-Express 2.0 x16, i need one with the PCI Express x1 placed lower or above the upper PCI-Express 2.0 x16.
