Well.. It's me again. I'm having second thoughts about the mobo and the PSU in my build.. I don;t want to go any higher on my budget that I already have(1250-1300$). I will be OC'ing (really just a little bit) and I will go SLI in the future(No plans on OC'ing the GPU tho').

CPU: Intel® Core™ i5-3570K 3.4GHz 6MB LGA1155
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master HYPER 212 EVO UNIVERSAL COOLER
RAM: Corsair Vengeance White, 8GB, DDR3, 1600MHz, CL9, Kit of 2, Low Profile (ew, white.. IKR.. The only low profile they've got from Corsair)
HDD: Western Digital CAVIAR Blue 500GB SATA 7200RPM 16MB
Optical Drive: Samsung DVDRW 22X SATA BLACK SH-222BB/BEBE
Case: Cooler Master Storm Enforcer SGC-1000-KWN1
GPU: Gigabyte GF GTX670 2GB GDDR5 PCIE GV-N670OC-2GD/Zotac GF GTX 670 AMP! Edition 2gb (Which one's better? With the Zotac one I do go over the budget a bit so opinions on that too :)  )

So.. The motherboards in question-Asus P8Z77-V and Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H. I really don't know which one's better..
PSU's-Corsair 750W, TX750M, 120mm fan or Fortron FSP Aurum ATX 2.3 750W 90+ AURUM750 CM GOLD

Also would be nice to hear opinions about the build itself.

GPU: Go for the Gigabyte card. Better cooling, no noise, won Tom's Hardware's 670 test.


Motherboard: If they do not differ much in functionality (=what kind of ports and how many), I would go for the cheapest one. Both boards are great.

PSU: What's the price difference? If the Corsair doesn't cost much more I'd go for that one.

Also, which website are you buying from?

Actually the Corsair one is a bit cheaper.°

I'm buying from 1a.lv. I'm from Latvia and that's one of the most trusted e-stores around here.
