Advise on the boards

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Ok I think I'm down to Asus Z68 board now and need to choose between two (unless anyone thinks diffrent please noooooooooo lol)

Asus P8Z68 V pro Gen 3......or the Deluxe version Gen 3 At the moment theres about £40 diffrance between the two

Im going to get a OCZ Vertex 3 Max IOPS 120 GB (SATA 6 for operating system and programmes) I will load all my OS and programes on this and use 2 x WD Caviar blacks Sata 3GBs for storage (I have them all ready so no point in changing to SATA 6GBs yet)

I dont do any gaming but do video and photo editing but not lots. Besides that my comp is used for music, iplayer, and is a genral hack glory fied Ebay and porn machine lol. My set up is listed below and I know you can do these comparison charts side by side of spec but what dose it mean in real terms the diffrance beteen the two ???? If I get the Deluxe version I dont think I will use there USB 3 box as may as well get one thats a card reader and USB 3 in one unit. Any real advice please ???



I will be using from my old comp for ether set up.......

Windows home premium 64 Bit
2 x Western Digital Caviar Black HDD (SATA 3 not the new 6) 1TB each being used for storage of pics, film, music etc
Cooler Master silent Pro 850 PSU
2 x LG blue ray burner/drives
Iiyama ProLite B2409HDS I will be adding a second one of these monitors
2 x Icy Box caddies (To easy remove storage drives for hiding when go away)
