Grand total offfffffffff drum rollllll ........1611.41..... :whoa: good gawd lol.

 

I figured on the republic of gamers mobo because of the built in sound card and sata 6 capability for the intel ssd and wd velociraptor.

 

What do you guys think? All this was pulled off of Amazon by the way. Everywhere else I checked seemed to be the same or very very very close.

Why the FirePro card? If its for gaming you would be better off with a card more like a 6850, which is about $30 more but much more powerful, and its the newest series

Actually it will be more based for Cad Software, but still trying to keep the pc versatile as it will be my main home pc. So workstation/ home entertainment. Unless there is a better card for this circumstance?

No I haven't bought anything as of yet. The velociraptor is just for storage I have about 200gb on my current pc so that sad alone wont be enough.

why not get the Seagate LP 2TB, it's plenty fast and you wont see that money justified for a storage drive.

 

naturally I'd get a cheaper motherboard too but if you really want the sound card that's on you cuz :P

Well I do want the sound card but is there a better option of doing a difference mobo and seperate sound card? Better card for the money? Also I was doing that board because of the sata 6

You're askin the wrong fella, I'm not up on sound cards. I'm plenty content with whatever onboard sound chip I end up with, they all have been plenty good for me :thumbsup: .

 

I thought all 890FX's have Sata 3?? (which really only matters with SSDs anyway, mechanical drives haven't even broken the Sata 2 speed cap)

True but the intel ssd is Sata 6. And then I would have a mobo that is also ready for future upgrades yes?

am3 is a dead end.... i wdnt "upgrade " to that. stick to 1155 or wait for the new AMD stuff. ( or better yet, go cheap now and wait for the next gen consoles to arrive and then build yr newpc to whatever new crappy standard - OMG dx18!)
