Higher quality board, same pcie lanes, sexier?
I like the slot spacing on the board i picked. If there is another with triple slot spacing for my Sli setup then i would go for it.

Get that Gigabyte board Conner suggested and use the difference to pay for the 1090T. With the pair of 1TB F3's in RAID and a 750w modular PSU, you would have a really fast rig for an awesome price that would look GREAT. Plus you could always add another Fermi and a BD chip later

i heard OCing on CHV is great, i'm getting the board soon myself, and i don't think i'm going to crossfire anytime soon biggrin.gif
but defo no 3 way-crossfire, so if you want to OC i'd go with CHV thumbsupsmiley.png

and like the guys said get F3s instead of WD, i got 2 WDs one black and the other is green, they are good but i would've taken the F3s if they're sold in my country frown.gif
