MSI P67A-GD65, Hmm I might choose that instead of P8P67 Pro

I dont really use FPA headers so hopefully it wont be an issue. (they have bad placement for SLI)

If you want, I'll let you know my impressions of it when I get my hands on it.

It's one of the cheaper P67s and the only thing I found it lacked was the tri-sli and dual network adapters. I have no need for 3 PCI Ex 16x slots and I think network sharing is a crock as I never noticed any difference on my current motherboard.

If those things are important to you, wait for the MSI P67A-GD80.

Yes please, I still have a while before I can actually buy a board.

just read this
"The MSI P67A-GD65 is a 6+2 phase and poor match for any 'K' CPU, and the vanilla ASUS P8P67 is 12+2 phase."

Oh and I also have an Intel 510 120GB SSD coming in as well.

Yes I know the Vertex 3 is a bit faster, but the 120 wasn't in stock and I didn't want to put my build on hold waiting for it.

I don't consider it to be extreme. There are CPUs that cost three times as much, motherboards that cost twice as much, ram that is more costly and clocks faster, and 580/590 GPUs. I consider it to be on the low side of a high end system.

I'll try to get the pics in. I'm terrible at wiring for airflow so the inside will probably resemble a rat's nest.

i am too, but just route whatever you can behind the motherboard, and everything else should kindda be bundled together. it'll look awesome
