Is the number of PCI express in this motherboard worth it?

How strong is this with or without it?

This system gets all 10s except for ram.

The R9 270 doesn't even have official support for Vista...It seems that AMD has dropped Vista support since 13.4

The link to the motherboard just brought me to a list of a bunch of motherboards. Be warned that some major manufacturers actively prevent you from using Xeon chips in order to push their server boards. Make sure the board you choose is compatible before ordering.

That's a pretty sick chip for $80 though, 4.1ghz turboboost on an ivy bridge quad core, if you can bump up the turboboost that thing is just insane bang for the buck.

I tried to check out with paypal and it won't let me. Combine that with a lot of bad reviews about delays in refunds, wrong parts being sent, no replys from CS, and some sketchy positive reviews, it seems like a good idea to avoid it. The CPU normally sells for $1,000, definitely one of those "too good to be true" scenarios.

There's only one AMD CPU that's better and its in the 9000 series.

There's no AMD CPU that's better. Not sure what you're smoking.
