I'm hopelessly deadlocked on this choice so I'm seeking any and all advice.

I'll be installing a 4670k and crossfired 7970s. I might overclock but even if I do it will be only slightly.

My needs are many sata 6gb ports, built-in wireless, and good spacing between gpu slots -- and all three boards touch those bases. The build is a media server that I can game on.

Asus is the cheapest of the vendors I would buy from, $185 after rebate; the other boards are $200. Which would you pick and why?

From my personal experience, ASrock has been strong as adamantium for me, so my vote goes there. thumb.gif
