the Asrock board is better all around value, but it may be worth waiting for the EVGA z77 stinger?

Why exactly? The Stinger offers no notable extra features over the Z77 E-ITX, and production has been put back 3 times already. The Asrock board is proven and available now.

Oh come on guys!
Sometimes, I recommend the SG08! rolleyes.gif

You only recommend the SG07/08 if someone mentions a 690/6990 or the SG07/08 specifically.

About the HDD. I'd suggest (and it's what I personally do) is to get a 7200rpm 2.5" drive like the Scorpio Black series. It only goes up to 750GB but it is sufficient. You can also drop to a 5400rpm 1TB 2.5" drive. (Last but not least, you can go to a 2TB 2.5" Green Drive (~15mm tall) if you want to shell out the money. Link. I wouldn't recommend this though. A good 7200rpm drive will be better suited.

i had no idea some of those drives existed.
rep++; // (I'm still recommending the momentus 750GB Hybrid, though, for any 2.5" form factor drive. He hasn't really mentioned a specific use for such a large volume drive)

here snag this for 100.

also, you can get a 7970 for less than that 670....

7970 > 680

said so from the 680 buyers remorse thread. lol
