I'm Building a new pc over the next month or two and motherboards are the one thing I don't know much about. Aside from the chipset, amount of ram and PCI slots, and CPU socketing what seperates the different motherboards?
ie. what makes a ASRock Z77 Extreme9 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 better than a ASRock Z77 Pro3 LGA 1155 Intel Z77?
the reason i selected a 1050 watt power supply is that PSU is that PSU's are at there highest efficiency at about 50-60% load. But i have to agree that even then i still should probably go down to the 850 watt version. Also now that i look at it there is no reason not to go with win 7 pro
