fantastic! Do you think quad crossfire is realistic, I mean, by the time your card becomes THAT obsolete that you need four, wouldnt you be better off getting a new one?

I am kinda new to motherboards, what kind of features and such should I be looking for in a motherboard, duel bios quick sync, what do you think?

going for an enthusiast build here, 2600k at the least.




edit:

it seems as though intell is scraping the z68 and going with the z77, what does this mean?

or this.

what does it all mean? someone was saying high end ivy bridge will use the 2011 socket as well

What does scraping mean? Meaning they are no longer going to support it. Actually, I heard that 1155 can use Ivy too, IIRC.

P67 is a more respected board chipset. More options.
