They are really thin and short,looks to be made of plastic or temperd glass or sonething? My god they look so nice,thats what i want instead of the water lines! You guys know what iam,tslking about?
I heard diamond is bad 7790 is up JUST A OPINION gotta say that before another fanboy gets me

Motherboard doesn't matter as long as it can support your cpu and has enough slot for your gpus. Motherboard won't effect your gameplay nor it gives you more fps in gaming. Its only matter when you want to overclock your cpu and for that you might need a better motherboard such as the Z77 motherboard.

Yes, that's another one to consider.

motherboard to buy
if you have 1 graphic card
z77
if you have 2 graphic cards
z77/x79
if you have 3+ graphic cards
z77 w/ plx or x79

if you are going with z77 plx : asus maximus extreme v, gigabyte z77x up7, asrock extreme 9 and evga z77 ftw looks like it is the only good option
edit : there is p8z77 ws and gigabyte g1 sniper 3

that's makes no sense the chip set doesn't affect the graphics.
