General Build Advice (pre-order) - Page 5

post #41 of 43
Thread Starter 
Could I get some opinions between these two motherboards? There aren't many differences between the two. The Gigabyte board is more expensive, but it has more USB 3.0 ports than the ASUS (6 vs 2), and the PCI-E configuration is slightly different. The ASUS board runs two video cards at x16 and x8 respectively, while the Gigabyte runs them at x16 and x16 respectively.

Motherboard Candidate #1: ASUS P8P67 WS Revolution
Motherboard Candidate #2: Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD7

I would also like some opinions between these three monitors (basically helping me determine which is worth its price tag - note that one monitor is 25", while the other two are 27"):

Monitor Candidate #1: ASUS VE258Q Black 25"
Monitor Candidate #2: ASUS VK278Q Black 27" 2ms
Monitor Candidate #3: ASUS VE276Q Black 27" 2ms

I don't care about extra features like the webcam or speakers, I just want a quality monitor for gaming, video encoding (and, of course, watching), graphic design, etc. I'm also open to suggestions!

Finally, could somebody suggest a decent Fan Controller? It doesn't have to be fancy, but it definitely needs to be able to control all of the HAF-X's numerous fans. Bonus points for awesome designs! Oh, and while I'm at it, what do you guys think of the fans I selected in the first post? Do you think they will do the job, or should I upgrade them?

Thanks, and sorry for the massive number of questions.
