Looks fine. Any particular reason you need a $300 motherboard?


Nothing in particular - just the included sound seems to be an upgrade over the Hero's, and I will eventually SLI. Should I opt for the Hero instead?


Not sure you can SLI 780ti with a 750W PSU, and if you could you would probably be running on the limit,.

750W is more than enough.

Whats the price tag on all this together? Im looking for a decent build too and just curious on pricing.


It is like $1750 all together with shipping, and without any sales. That is without a PSU, RAM, or HDD involved in the price.

And half of that is the graphics card... :/

My current system isn't demanding at all! It's just a rehashed old dell prebuilt, with new RAM, PSU, and case. I had a Radeon 6850 but it got fried when I was younger. My mom flipped the switch haha. I haven't had a gaming quality PC for a while.

If you want to spend money on your sound, don't pour it into the motherboard. Just get a separate sound card. A $70 Sound Blaster Z is going to be better than what you get on the $300 board and will give you more flexibility.


I figured with the suite of on board services, the ROG armor for keeping a stable OC (the Haswell especially due to the on board volt regulator) at 4.5Ghz ideally, and the audio would just be a bonus. Is the upgrade from the Hero not worth $100.00?

Also I don't really have the cash for a sound card right now unless I downgrade the mobo. I'm really interested in the discussion - if its not worth the premium why spend the money? Thanks for the criticism.

It can't be helped! And technically, only 7/17'ths is the graphics card, or some obnoxious fraction like that. But I get what you mean!

2x8gb or 2x4gb RAM would be preferable, I don't think you want to fill up everything immediately.

I have that motherboard too, still good price if you need everything on it. Still, if you don't need the AC wifi card and planning to use a soundcard, get a Sabertooth instead.

Marketing buzzwords. It's not going to do anything but look cool. If you like the looks, by all means go for it, but unless you're extreme overclocking or a huge enthusiast, you're usually fine maxing out your motherboard budget at $200. The Hero is even more than I would spend. The sweet spot is usually around $160-$180 IMO.
