1 week, well 4 days (might as well be a week with shipping). Stuck on a difficult choice because of a board that is just plain useless (shooting a POST error for a connector I don't have, and that this board has no version that does have with this chipset). Anyway, so go ahead with a 7950 and a water cooler and upgrade board and case later? Or goto a OC board to get my $$ worth out of the CPU, and maybe like a 7870 or 7850 or the like, maybe another used 480?

I committed to buy. Paying for it as soon as the money post to the bank (should be 0400 hours EST).

I think all I am going to do to the case now though (this month) is install the water cooler. Did not think the rest of it out too much. Well thought it out, but did not price it out with branded parts. :( It will get done though.

Just bit of advice. There is a lot of issued of old BIOS version on Z77 version as i experienced. I recommended updating to F18 on your Z77X-UD3H. I check F18 as stable BIOS. Had issued with video card and CPU, but after F18 it getting better.

Learn to read. I did not get the UD3H. Bad motherboard mascarading as something good.

Got the P8P67 WS Revolution for $140 shipped. It is a much better board with 3 way SLI while having 16 phase power. Something you have to go to a UD5H to get.

Huh? I don't see that UD5H have 3 way SLI it did? I think video card wouldn't running at PCIe X4. Plus. I thought i saw you say you getting for UD3H?

Read quoted post directly above your post.

And I don't give a shit about 3 way SLI. 1 card will game just fine until computer gaming ends. What I was talking about is the 16 phase power, which is better for clocking the processor.

Jason thought it would be good to update the thread now. So here is what I am going to get now, and it should be better. Still don't have my case build finished, but that is because I am out of funds and materials.

So Case parts to finish:

Computer parts:

and depending on what I decide to do, the rest should be
