Hi guys, i was recently on a thread with a handful of people discussing my build, and what can be changed and altered. I'm just about ready to head out, and order all the parts, but before i do, there's just one thing i'm not sure about.

I'm stuck between two motherboards, I've done tons of reviews, and watched videos on both, but don't know which one suits my needs. This is my first build, i want nice easy OC, sturdy build, and a board that will really push all my other parts to the max of their potential. Here's the rest of my build, excluding the motherboard for suggestions.

(The 2 SSD's will be running in Raid 0, whatever that means -,- lol if someone could shed some light on that would be nice !)

changing just about everything listed

-i7s dont perform better in games
-haswell is coming in a week anyways. might as well wait for it
-raid 0 ssds dont do jack in real life. toms has a nice article about it
-a single titan is powerful enough to run a 1440p pane with ease. having 2 is just stupid. not to mention new 700 series cards are coming out in a few days. might as well wait up for that as well
-power supply is ridiculously overkill. a 850w unit will easily run it
-case 1/3 of the price is built just as well
-you can get a cheaper keyboard that is just as good
-there are cheaper mice that are just as good

if you must buy now, heres what id be getting. even if money is not a issue, its for someone to throw around

Always gotta counter argue about "i7s dont perform better in games" That is fasle. I7 performs better in games like FSX, GW2, and RTS games or games with large zergs. The OC is the important factors. If you dont plan to overclock it then dont get a i7.

If you were building a system with twin Titans, would you really match them with a i5 rather than a i7 though? No, of course you wouldn't.

whoever builds a rig with 2 titans is plain stupid unless they were running 3 panels, and in this case, they are not.
