Hello All,

I need some advice on which motherboard I should be going with as currently, i'm completely confused with all of the specs that motherboards have...I don't know which one to go with.

Criteria:
I want an extreme gaming PC (price isn't much of an issue..but to a degree)
I do a lot of gaming, but my current system is really lacking now
I want something that is future proof for at least a few years
I want to OC so liquid cooling is compulsory



I was thinking about:

Motherboard: ASUS Sabertooth Z77 Intel Series 7 ($245)
CPU: Intel Core i7-3770K Quad Core ($320)

The other peripherals i'm still doing research on so I don't have a list for that (any help on that would be appreciated as well)

Awesome..thanks for sharing that resource. I'll check it out!

Are those builds the most up-to-date at the current time? I've seen some forums where its a couple months or even a YEAR old!

Thanks!

its about a month old or so ... thats why i say its a good starting point.. After you figure out a little more details i would come back and post your idea and have people comment in a little more detail ..

the more information you share in the post the better response you will get. The problem with saying "i want a awesome pc for doing stuff that will last" (not what you said but what so many others do) is that the hardware is different for different needs

so give us a good idea of what you want the unit to do .. how much you want to spend and and ideas that you have in your head and you will get a much more detailed and useful response.. .
