Sup guys, first time posting but long long time reader on these forums.
With all my experience in building computers, this is the first time I struggle finding the right motherboard. There are just too many good choices... it is insane (i guess im still an amateur)
What I do with my computer: I am a hardcore gamer, i like to open many programs at once, I like speed, I do not overclock my computer, not needed.
My other components: corsair water cooling H100i, 2x GTX 760 (SLI), 4 SSDs, 2 HDDs, CPU i7 4770K,
the RAM i am not sure yet... I guess I should settle for DDR3 RAM 1600MHz, anything higher is overkill right? should I consider triple channel RAM?
I would like to have at least 8 SATA ports, and I am not too big on playing around with the settings on my motherboard.
So far, what has caught my eye is the ASUS Maximus VII Hero
feel free to suggest downgrades, or suggest areas for me to save money. I do want my rig to look nice
Thank you for any input. Also feel free to just simply tell me what recent motherboard you have and why you have it.
