I would much rather go for an i3 and a 660ti/7950.

Hello Owen. Seems you can't newegg (UK i presume) and I would recommend this board: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
solely because it will let you have 3 SATA 6gb/s ports as opposed to only 1 offered by the asus board. you therefore get a total of 8 SATA ports as oppsed to 5 in that asus.

They'll match quality wise and the AsRock would be cheaper but unfortunately it is not listed on the site your want to shop from. If you can search for the ASrock board on some other sites serving your local area I think you can get a pretty good deal.

the Asus is indeed a very good board so you can jst go with it also if you cant locate the one I've suggested.

good luck

if this: http://www.amazon.co.uk/ASRock-B75-Motherboard-Instant-...

does not work for you still no wories...its NOT a "tough luck" situation. Go ahead and buy that Asus. Its a great board and won't give any problem. just would recommend that if you are going for an SSD+HDD combo, place the SSD in the 6gb/s (SATA III) slot and HDD in the 3 gb/s slots. this way you will maximize the read write speeds of the SSD.

good luck
