I'm getting this board because this is probably the best board for 3-way graphics without getting the $400 flagships.
yea, for 3-way i woudl have stuck with the sniper 5, its audio is also much better than anything else on a motherboard. but yea its cost is more than double so you need to weigh what you want.

You are welcome, it is a decent board, are you a gamer, is that why you are looking into gaming boards? Or you just like the NIC or audio or somthing?
