I'm going for an Intel i7 3770K (39x is to expensive yet) with an Asus P8z77-X? mobo.
Main question which P8z77 mobo should I take? I have an Samsung SSD, 2 SATA2 HD, SATA1 10kraptor HD firewire card
I dont want to buy an expensive model with functions I never will use

samwax wrote:I only wish the P8 Z77 - V , or lower models , had just 3 Sata III / 6 Gb ports , not one of them in the lower cheaper segment with this feature , i would wonder if a PCI x card with a Sata 3 / 6 Gb/s might give the same performance
samwax wrote:well if u say so , i just thought , that @ least the Os , the Vsti/s n the Audio rendering should hv been Sata 6/gb/s , but if ur point above is right , then i dont need to go 4 all those extras , a cheaper P8z77 should do fine , so keep an SSD on the Sata 6 Gb/s , n the Vsti/s n rendering ??? there will b only 1 more Sata 6 Gb/s n mostly 2 Sata 3 Gb/s any suggestions which should go where , or the rendering or vsti/s require the may b faster 6 Gb/s thats all , rest i ll pick up a normal ful ATX , yes i get hyper 2 see that every bit is perfect , but u r right , in what u say ..... i ll just look @ the board with 2 / PCI / PCIx slots , n thats it ..n i want to put a cheap fanless silent 1 Gb V card ... n i m done ... n i 5 3450.... any more suggestions ?? n No one answered this , would it make a difference if i kept a 500 Gb extra H/ Drive to load programmes only , n add a Turbo boost , sandisk Ready Cache 32 Gb ...
would that add 2 the performance ???? i know this is crazy ideas , but would it help ease up taxing the CPU ????
n thanks 4 ur time n advice .
samwax wrote:yap , just inquiring, if it would have been a short cut 2 better performance , looks like it not , but the i7 3770K is very expensive , the the turbo boost n H/ drive aint , n i dt have so many $$$ , i read that the i 5 3450 is close to the performance of the i 7 3770 K , i wouldnt want the k Oc , as i read that it voids warranty , i would prefer stock , n its cheaper , would appreciate if u could clarify just this point here , well all said , i try work it out ur way .... but would u suggest i7 stock or the i5 ??? the K would only give more performance if its OC/ed right ....??? this would kinda finalize my quest . thanks again sm
