  1. H77 is generally better than B75.
    http://www.techspot.com/guides/502-intel-ivy-bridge/page3.html

    The ASRock H77 has;
    4 memory slots, asus b75 has 2
    4 x SATA 6Gb/s, " has 1
    1 x eSATA 6Gb/s on its rear panel.
    The onboard audio chipset seems better too.

    Although these features might be useless to some/you, but its seems like a good deal when you're getting these extra features for the same price, which just might come in handy in the future. :)

    This is getting to a spam, sorry for this, first time here but uh, it seems the PSU u recommended is not sold in my country. Why did you recommend that anyway?
    So far your answers are great, thanks.
  3. Because its an excellent PSU. A high quality unit.
    Anyways, are Corsair, Seasonic, XFX, OCZ or any reputable/popular brand PSUs available?

    These are links from my country's shop, the number 1 store in our country. The page is not in english but all the models/specs/info is so there should be no problem for you to check them out. I listed only the 400-500W because it's certain I wont buy over that.

    Seasonic:

    Corsair:

    OCZ:
    http://arvutikeskus.ee/est/Otsing/OCZ/173 (500W)

    You can really help me by also checking these out: http://arvutikeskus.ee/est/TOOTEKATALOOG/ARVUTIKOMPONENDID-Toiteplokid-PSU
    The farther you go the higher the price. Max price is 70 EUR for me.

    Thanks man :)

    I guess I'm gonna go with: http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=Story5&reid=185
    But the motherboard you recommended is ASRock? Everywhere I read they say it's fair/low. ASUS is sayed to be a far better brand and I myself have more ASUS than ASRock, no ASRock brands at all. I am gonna go with the one I was and still am planning. I don't really care about those extra slots either yea.
  6. SSD for boot?
