No offense here but your post is far from convincing. You didn't tell me what the warranty is (had to look to back up your claim and it's the same
as ASUS (unless you were referring to customer service), you didn't say why I would want that board, if it's really more reliable, and to boot your post was hard to read. I also don't see how researching features and looking at first-hand user reviews is guesswork on my part.
I say this because you say that I "rely" on Intel, when in fact I chose
intel for the CPU due to performance specs for my specific purpose. AMD can't hold up the same to what I want to do, and ASUS, Gigabyte, ASRock...etc, do not make CPUs
. Apples to oranges... I wouldn't buy a car made by Kumho or Continental just because I have their tires, or vice-versa if Toyota made tires. Perhaps I am "rely[ing]" on Intel for the CPU, but my choices for manufacturers are a whopping two
I ended up on the ASUS because reviews are good, and the feature set is great. I wanted WIFI and I need dual video out, which Intel doesn't seem to care much to support. Yes I will have a dedicated GPU eventually but right now I need dual digital video outs.
If the intel board is that great I figure I would have run into a review saying so by now, but rather I'm searching for a comparison, and i'm not finding much. Thank you for your suggestion though, it got me looking at other options.
Still looking at other options though. None of the z77 boards on newegg manufactured by Intel have the video out I need, and that won't cut it.

Cool, I figured that's what it was. Sounds fun (and expensive).Edited by Figit090 - 8/21/12 at 1:30pm
