The way I look at it is if AMD is good enough for the fastest supercomputer in the US, it's good enough for me. :)

I tend to prefer Gigabyte for mobos.

Performance to price ratio goes to intel. :withstupid:

Vouch for gigabyte. I've had 3 of their boards, one was DoA and was RMAed very quickly and easily.

you are talking about max performance - unless you work for NASA you probably dont need

checking email and watching youtube, AMD fusion is the best value

I would go with the Gigabyte motherboard,... seems MSI went out with the Big Bang. :yucky: And AMD has always had superior memory bandwidth somehow over Intel.

i7-4790K

Maximus VII Gene

GTX Titan Black 6GD5

G.SKILL 4X4GB 3200MHz

Corsair AX760i

Corsair Obsidian 450D

Cooling by Black Ice & EK

Talking about the choice between UD3, UD5, UD7- I should say go ahead and buy either UD5 or UD7. UD3 shouldn't be first choice.
