The Motherboard must have a minimum of 2 GPU slots so I can SLI 2 or more cards. I must be able to have at least 1 PCI slot uncovered for my Sound Card. I must be able to use fast RAM (1866 Mhz+). I must have 2 or more SATA 3 ports for when I get SSD's. I would like the boards color to match that of the GPU (Optional ).
How are these parts?: Intel i7 3770k OR Intel i5 3570K, ASUS GTX 670 Direct CU II TOP, Asus ***** IV/V Formula.
And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: Because I would like faster PC that would be better at Video Editing than my current PC. I like having all the Eye-candy cranked up to Ultra, I can do that at the moment but everything isn't turned to Ultra. I have read that the i7 CPU's are better for Video Editing but I may be wrong. I also understand there is nearly no difference between the i7 and i5, FPS Wise.
I have the other parts but I don't think I need to list them.
MODERATORS: The last, similar post I made, I couldn't edit any of my posts nor change the title. I needed to make a new thread since I by accident, wrote that I needed new RAM when I didn't. Sorry for the inconvenience!
