I am building my new system now, see how expensive it is for what I want, then if its too expensive I will wait. Anyways, I chose this CPU. i7 2600K Newegg.ca - Intel Core i7-2600K Sandy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo Boost) 4 x 256KB L2 Cache 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor BX80623I72600K And I am wondering what my motherboard choices are. I want USB 3.0, as many 3.0 ports as possible. I want Tripel Channel Memory (or duel channel I guess) up to 2200 (or is it 2133MHz). Support for SLI/Crossfire, so at least 2 of PCI Expreess 2.0 x16. And of course any other features that help with future proofing it. Thanks.
