Choice of Motherboard, initially Asus P8Z77-V LK CHANGED to
MSI 77A-GD65 LGA 1155 BECAUSE OF MULTIPLE COMMENTS RE ASUS POOR CUSTOMER SUPPORT.
1. Insofar as I have no experience I wondered whether experienced builders agree.
2. Please see my Build and let me know whether you see non-conforming components.
I would have edited my original thread but see no way of doing that.

I would also try to plan in advance, if possible for either existing or future expansion card/s. For example i run 2 x tv cards and if i were in the market for a new board i would really study the layout after a discrete GPU is slotted in , etc
