Three questions: what is your budget, will you be overclocking, and do you need SLI?

The DFI Ultra-D is a good board if your going to be doing serious overclocking and it can be modded to SLI.

What about your hdds? Do you know the interface you need?

k so we'll take that as your not going to be Overclocking or SLing. Go with a MSI Neo.

HDD is the hard drive(storage). And SLI is pretty much used for running two videocards.

Hdds= hard drives either IDE or SATA
SLI = hooking up 2 video cards together to get better performance.

Are you buying a whole new system or are you taking parts from other comps?
