As far as the gpus I have 2 upgrade my current ones on my amd rig before I start this build so id like 2 give nvidia a try this time around
They stopped putting those stupid heatsink designs on this generation. From what I am told, it is the same VRM design as the Z77 UP5, which I'm told is very good.

See, no stupid stylized heatsinks.

Also, I would recommend 7950s over 670s, as 7950s are cheaper but still have the same level of performance as 670s. They tend to perform superior to the 670s when you are running resolutions greater than 1080p.

They are much better now! I did like a couple of the boards themselves, but I refused to buy any motherboard marketed at 13 year olds. Dunno what MSI & Gigabyte were thinking when they were doing the gun themes...

I don't like the green all that much either; they gave the best colors to the UP7 unfortunately tongue.gif.

If you install cards and RAM, you can't see all that much green, though.
