No. It is an overclocking board and I doubt you are buying this machine for extreme OC?

P9X79 Pro is a good feature packed board for the money.

Depending on whether or not you will be overclocking, I would pick either 600W or 700W PSU. You can comfortably run a 690 off of a 500W if you are certain you won't overclock, but 2011 chips can get power hungry.

Go with a Gigabyte or ASRock equivalent instead... ASUS is overrated these days.

The cheaper Asrock still use D-PAK mosfets so i would go with a Gigabyte

That's just the Z77 Extreme4, pretty sure the rest of the boards are solid. And for a second let's just say that their other boards still use them, they still are solid boards regardless of the OCN "D-Pak Mosfet" fear mongering shtick that get's thrown around here all the time. It's not going to limit your overclock at all. So running around screaming that at people all the time is kind of pointless, people have great experiences with their boards and still getting high overclocks... redface.gif
