Witch Mobo Should I Use

Hey guys a i was just wondering is there going to be any major advantage to buying an asus P8Z77-V DELUXE over a P8Z77-V Pro Mobo for gaming/video edting.

Getting the deluxe version would meen im slightly over budget as i also want to get the scansure insurance From Scan on my pc build. My entire build will be my first and piece of mind knowing if i screw up stuff will be replaced free of charge including the dreaded bent pin stuff they tell you is your falt even though you just took it out the box lol

I Kinda Want to get the best i can now to lol "Future Proof" if thats posible

Any thoughts.

  1. You obviously know there's actually no such thing as "future proofing". The deluxe isn't so much "better" than the Pro, as "different". It's a bit swings and roundabouts. Nothing that's "likely" to be an issue. You could even make an arguement for V PRO/Thunderbolt, as that's likely to be a direction, in the future. If you spend too much time thinking about it, nothing is adequate!
    On the rest of it, I presume you actually NEED i7, gaming doesn't benefit (over i5).
    The two things you might like to think about:
    1) Samsung 830, or Crucial M4 are much better SSD's.
    2) The Hydro 80 is particularly noisy. It might be worth considering the H100, which because of its higher performance, can do the SAME job, quieter. (still wouldn't call it silent, but certainly better)
    The Obsidian IS a good case. It's pretty heavy, so put it where yo don't have to keep moving it, or you'll end up with slipped disc.
  2. take this

    and add this

    the free ram and the extra kit of ram i put in the parts list will give you 16gb in total. i will assume you actually need a i7

    System noise is not a big issue for me as im currently useing a hp laptop thats been sitting on a cooling board that soulds like an areoplain taking off.
    i want the i7 just because im planning to do more than gaming but i know what you mean. ill look up on the ssds thank you :)
