Best 1155 Board around $150

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
I have this in my cart right now. Can I do better at this price? Don't need the SSD caching really.

That is a very nice board. I would personally go with the P8Z68-V though. Very nice PCIe layout and UEFI is very user friendly.

Wont that just get disabled anyway with SLI? Anyway, I think a 2600k, and two 570s will be plenty fast enough, and eventually Ivy.

However, your GPU will still be consuming power at idle.

It does not completely turn off your discrete GPU, it just Utilizes it when the IGP can't handle the load anymore.

SSD caching has it's uses, but I'd prefer a direct SSD.
