Iv pretty much finished off a build for a friend of mine but im thinking of changing the MoBo I chose from a Z68 to a new Z77 as im buying an Intel i7 3770 for the CPU. The System will be used for heavy/professional Video editing/rendering using CS5 Premiere Pro mainly.
Im fairly set on getting an Asus as i really like the brand but there are so many different types and was wanting help with the differences, from the P8Z77 WS to the P8Z77-V, P8Z77-V LE, LE PLUS, P8Z77-V LX, P8Z77-V LK......?
If anyone can help it would be great.
The Rest of the build is as follows
CPU: Intel i7-3770 Ivy Bridge 1155 Mobo: Asus P8Z68-V-Pro/Gen3........Asus P8Z77-V-Pro GPU: GeForce GTX 580 "Phantom" 3072MB SSD: Corsair 120GB Solid State Drive SATA 6Gb/s - For System and Programs HDD: Seagate 500gb HDD 7200rpm RAM: Corsair 8GB, DDR3 SDRAM Dual Channel 1600Mhz PSU: CorSair TX650 V2 650W 80+ Bronze
You could probably get an GTX670 for the same price as that GTX580. And you should.
As for the mobo, I'm not much of an specialist on the subject but I don't think it would matter much which board you pick since your friend won't be OC'ing. Any Asus Z77 board would suffice, just get the cheapest one.
I could be wrong.
