very unsure on a motherboard

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
apparently you can't post in the motherboard section of this site. so I'm posting it here.

Finally decided on a corsair 600t but I'm becoming very indecisive about the motherboard having looked at pretty much the majority of the manufacturers and deciding which ones I want to stay away from.
So I need some recommendations

Requirements:
- ATX sized (unless the 600t is capable of fitting an extended atx?)
- able to fit two Nvidia 660Ti along with standard full length waterblocks fitted to them.
- space for a soundcard (yes I know they are highly unnecessary, but I for some reason still want one.)
- has wireless or comes with a wireless card.

I've also seen some motherboards laid out in a way that makes it awkward for the 600t sometimes having only just enough space to fit the radiator meaning the fans have to go beneath the removable grill on the top.

with regards to budget, if the mobo can be priced at less than 200 that would be great, but I am still willing to sacrifice paying a little more if need be.

I have a friend with that asus p8Z77. and he has a singular 660 on it with stock gigabyte fan. It really doesn't look like theres much room left for another gpu along with a sound card and the wireless card. although that asrock one does look like it has the space. shame I'll have to buy the w/lan card seperately.
