I have a simple understanding whats out there but i want oppinions on builds for best bang for buck that will last another 4 years with minimal upgrades and that is upgrade proof for atleast 3 years or so
Why get that Z77 board? You it only gets Crossfire/SLI at 16x/4x. Which is a whole lot worse than 8x/8x. The board is Z68 but it doesn't mean it can't be used for IB. Z77 only gets a native PCI 3.0 and native USB 3.0 controller. Nothing of huge improvement. Z68 has Gen3, and the on the board USB 3.0 controller still performs the same.
