So it seems to tick all the boxes, and all I have to give up is OCing the cpu, which I wasn't really planning to do anyway.
So my question: Gigabyte H67MA-UD2H or the ASUS P8H67M-Evo?
I'm trying to go as small as possible and still have 4 Dimms. Seems mATX is the best I can do.
I know this will probably get me exiled from the boards, but if they're just doing photo editing as a hobby, and just want a large IPS screen, have they considered just getting a 27" iMac?
Obviously iMacs aren't power user/professional material by any means, but you can get one for basically the same price as a u3011 alone and, for a casual user, it should have more than enough to meet their needs.
