I am getting a second 7870 XT and my current motherboard only supports 16x/4x (I want one that supports at least 8x/8x).
I decided on a Z77 board so I could potentially overclock my 3570K.
The cheapest Z77 boards with at least 8x/8x are:
- £79 - ASRock Z77 Extreme4-M (4x SATA2, 4x SATA3)
- £85 - ASRock Z77 Extreme4 (4x SATA2, 4x SATA3)
- £97 - Gigabyte GA-Z77X-D3H (2x SATA2, 4x SATA3)
Does anyone have any thoughts about any of these?
I believe the top one (the "-M") is basically a smaller version of the middle one. I'm thinking I should go for the normal size one, since I have a very large PC case?
