It was a debate for me.
The WIFI model costs about 30 bucks more than the standard UD5
. I really wanted that WIFI card though. I even offered to buy one on this forum for like 45 USD when it came with the x79 boards. If I was gonna go 4-way SLI or Crossfire or use an advanced raid card or PCIe SSD card, I'd probably want to go with the G1 Sniper 3 since it has one of those advanced PLX chips that adds lanes. Very few boards support decent onboard audio while running 4-way SLI/Crossfire. Pricing is a bit hefty for my taste though though, and I think I'm kind of done paying more than 250 for any board :/
