My build is being messed up by my inability to get this motherboard through amazon currently. Is there a comparable-y priced version of this that is just as good or a bit better if I have to? The issue is with the motherboard and this is my build:

I'm looking at the Asus Z78-K and Z78-C. Are those two roughly the same? Neither has SLI support. Is that definitely something I'd want in the future?4

Single cards FTW.

Did you just put my same thing back up? The issue I had was that Asus Z78-A isn't going to work out on the same day as all my other pieces. (Won't be in stock until monday and that's only if my name is at the top of the reserved order list so I don't know when I would get it.) I would be supremely disappointed to get all parts but one from amazon and be waiting on just one part. So I was wondering if there was anything comparable to the Asus Z78-A that I should be getting. I know of the SLI dual graphics card thing, but not very much at all.

Yes, same motherboard, just get it from Newegg instead of Amazon.

Thanks for the help but that's almost like 40 more dollars than at amazon considering the free 2 day shipping I'd spend and the fact I doubt I'll ever do a rebate. I'll figure something out I suppose. Appreciate the help though, seriously. Cheers.

The motherboard is the same price at Newegg as it is on Amazon and also offers free shipping. Also, depending on where you are, it may even be delivered to you faster than Amazon. That's usually the case for me. Anyway, hope you find a solution.

Edit: Also, the motherboard is the same price with no rebate required. I don't know why you think it is $40 more and requires a rebate or why you think it doesn't have free shipping.

Having recently gone through an RMA with both Newegg and Amazon, I have to say that I'm never buying anything from Newegg again unless it's the only place I can find something that I really want. Their RMA process is horrible.
