BTW, the Maximus V Formula will have a card slot on it that is called a mini-PCI Express slot. I believe the board will come with a dual-band WiFi card but you can stick various cards in it like adapters, SSD modules, and even GPS.

Re: Z77 Boards

Here is some news about Haswell CPU's coming in March 2013.

The new chipset will have a new 1150 socket and will also contain 6 native SATA 6GB ports as well as 6 native USB 3.0 ports.

"Lynx Point as a chipset marks Intel's official switch to full SATA III 6Gbps support for all natively integrated SATA ports, in addition to a new default of six (6) native USB 3.0 ports. Of course, the chipset and its complementing 22nm Haswell-based CPUs will be based on a new physical socket size - Socket LGA 1150."

Re: Z77 Boards

From what I've read about Haswell, it's going to rock compared to IVB - especially once software if written to take advantage of it's dual 256b FMA untis (in each core). The new FMAs work on integer (as well as floating point) and can be used for encoding/decoding, cryto work, GPGPU instructions and could be used to boost performance of the built in iGPU (especially since there will be 8 256 FMAs on a quad core). Because of the 256b FMAs, the cache structures will need to be very fast and Intel appears to be ready to deliver on the faster cache (at least the L2$).

Since I'm not building till 2013, I'll probably wait till Haswell if I IVB-E doesn't add anything to IVB (in other words, if the situation is like SNB-E). I don't like being a trailblazer on new mobos, but it could happen.

I think X79 is out for me. I'm tired of waiting for native SATA 6GB and at most Intel would add only two more ports if a revised X79 even happens. Instead of waiting until the end of the year and paying a premium for a socket 2011 mobo plus CPU I think I will try and buy the Maximus V Formula and the i7-3770. With all the features the Maximus has plus SATA 6GB I think I will be quite happy. I should be able to OC the i7-3770 to 5GHz no problem and that should meet the performance I have now and then some along with having my SSD drive in RAID 0 on SATA 6. One other thing, the Maximus has PCIe 3.0 enabled so if using dual video cards at x8 and x8 it will actually be as fast or faster than x16 so not having 2x16 PCIe on the X79 is a moot point now. Both AMD/NVidia cards this year are PCI 3.0.

You have a good point here, for the extra cost of an s2011 setup, I could put together a nice SSD raid-0 setup (or HP's 27" monitor). I'll just have to wait till 2013 and see where things really stand.

Yes, it looks like an excellent monitor, especially for the price!

Re: Z77 Boards

Anybody have an IPS monitor? I am not up on monitors lately but I have looked at Dells U2410. What is so good about the HP above?

Re: Z77 Boards

I have two IPS monitors - they look freaking awesome and have great viewing angles (it still looks great 60 degrees off-center) compared to TN LCDs. The only thing I've seen that is better is a PVA monitor - really rich colors and deeper blacks). The HP above is and e-IPS, a cheaper version of IPS. Image quality probably isn't as good as the U2410, but it is still very good.

Re: Z77 Boards

A buddy of mine just bought a 27" 120hz monitor and I think it was IPS.

Edit: Nope, it's not IPS.

Re: Z77 Boards

Has anyone tried one of the Dell IPS monitors? I wish I had room to put a 27" on my desk.

That's the one Skully has.
