hell yea my hands are shaking lol. Kinda sucks that i have to look at my stuff and cant do anything yet lol. But im enjoying the 1080p monitor, looks amazing
I just received partially my components. Still missing the motherboard, the case and RAM.
Here's a quick question. I see there is 2*6 pin connectors on the GTX 560 Ti, am i suppose to connect them both?
This is what i got
Gigabyte Z68X-UD4-B3 ATX LGA1155 Z68 DDR3 2PCI-E16 2PCI-E1 2PCI SLI SATA3 USB3.0 Moth
Yea i was talking about the Gigabyte z68 board, but i was able to edit it. This is ridiclous, the total price i ended up paying is 1154$ with shipping,handling and taxes and i have 90$ of mail in rebate, so 1067$ lol. This is amazing
Wow dammit ... i already placed my order lol. I did choose the MSI GTX 560 Ti, but if only i had seen the Z68 board so cheap....omg lol. I believe it is too late
I'm about to pull the trigger, i need everyone to double check!
I'd like to thank all of you, you guys have been so helpful. Can't wait to receive it!

Dammit! I was too late lol, as i read right now, the 6950 is sold out. Wow that was a crazy good deal lol.
Im expanding my budget by 150$. I'll be using it to get a better GPU, the GTX 560 Ti (prolly going with either PNY/ASUS/EVGA/MSI)
Now im still hesitant when chosing the motherboard. I'll need some help.
GIGABYTE GA-Z68A-D3H-B3 (is 130$ too cheap?)
MSI P67A-GD55 (150$)
ASUS P8P67 (165$)
Which one of these is the best bang for the buck mobo?
If u have a better mobo in the range of 130$-160$, feel free to suggest
Now i don't know which motherboard to pick...
For similar prices i can either get the H67 or the Z68. Should i just go with the z68 since it offers more features for like the same price?
Thanks for the detailed response! I'll come back if i have any more questions
