  1. I don't recommend the micro atx motherboard. Also I recommend a corsair tx650 power supply.
  2. What motherboard do you then suggest, and will 650 be enough?
  3. ASRock Z77 Extreme4. 650W suffices for 670 SLI.
  4. Yes, it's too expensive for what it is.
  5. What's the difference between them, what bad about the first motherboard? Price?
  6. I agree, but i liked it for its perks
