" but with the addition of the mPCIe combo card, which gives it 802.11ac WiFi and Bluetooth"

Do you have to buy accessories to use 802.11ac?

I think Gigabyte may have a better lineup this time around.

I was actually thinking of going Asus this gen but Gigabyte seems to keep upping the ante when it comes to features.

Much prefer Gigabyte's UD4 instead.
The Hero does look good though, but... I cringe at the name. baaasmiley.gif

I've decided I'm going Gigabyte this round, sorry Asus, but you haven't upped the ante, you've actually regressed imo.
