I made a post a few weeks back asking if I should get the ASUS Maximus VI Hero or the ASUS Sabertooth x87 Motherboard. After doing research, I had my mind set on the VI Hero. Now the one thing that the VI Hero doesn't have is the Wi-Fi. So now, I'm looking at the VI Hero, and the VI Formula.

Should I go with the VI Formula, or stick with the VI Hero, and add a Wi-Fi card? That would be only about $40 more, than spending about $100 more and going with a motherboard that has it integrated onto it (using the mPCIe Combo II).

What exactly does the VI Formula have over the VI Hero that makes it almost $100 more?

So far, I'm going to use an i7-4770k and an EVGA GeForce GTX 780 w/ACX Superclocked. As of right now, I'm only going to use 1 video card, but I might add another in SLI, LATER DOWN THE ROAD (2 or 3 years down the road).

Right now, Newegg has the VI Hero for $199.99 and the Vi Formula is $304.99.

Either of the boards will do, but the only thing I'm looking at that sets me back from the VI Hero is the Wi-Fi. Of Course I can add the Wi-Fi adapter. I need Wi-Fi because my bedroom (where my desktop will be) is in the room next to the room with the router. Yeah, I can use a cord long enough to reach, but that looks ugly and too much of a pain.

I'd really appreciate your opinions. Thank you smile.gif
