  1. Your mobo can only go up to 2-way SLI. I would get this board http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128552 . I had it before. Amazing on board sound! Much better than Asus sound.

    Only need more than 1 670 if going at a higher resolution than 1080p or getting a 120hz monitor. 120hz monitors are amazing for 1st P Shooters. 5760x1080 is amazing for gaming as well. Though choice. Or you could get both like me.
  2. Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H better motherboard
  3. Thanks for your replies. I think I will buy the G1 Sniper. The problem is that I am living in Japan and the products here are a little different from the US's. I wonder if this is the same one as in NewEgg:

    And one more thing: do you think Corsair 600T, a mid-tower, can handle 3 GTX 670s?? I want a PC that can do 3-way SLI because I want to play future hardcore games at max settings.

    http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128544 is better than the G1 Sniper. http://www.amazon.co.jp/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1?__mk_ja_JP=%83J%83%5E%83J%83i&url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=Gigabyte+Ga-Z77X-Ud3h
  5. If you haven't decided on an optical drive still, any cheap drive will be fine but I recommend http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827106289&nm_mc=AFC-C8junctionCA&cm_mmc=AFC-C8JunctionCA-_-CD/DVD+Burners+(RW+Drives)-_-Lite-On-_-27106289&AID=10592396&PID=3938566 it's by far the best for the price imo.
  6. Can you guys tell me what is the better part of these Mobo compared to Asus P8Z77-V DELUXE? I see many good reviews of Asus P8Z77-V DELUXE. I'm a newbie.

    I am just telling you what I prefer, the Asus P8Z77 is a decent motherboard too.
  8. After researching, I think I will get the GIGABYTE Z77X-UP5-TH, which is a little cheaper and has thunderbolt.
