    Default New Motherboard

    Gone help out my brother as he is gone upgrade his PC now
    he is kinda on a budget so mainly new MB, CPU and RAM to upgrade in the first-place.

    But what to get?

    the x79
    or AMD?

    or should he wait for a z77?

    as what i understand no AMD MB have a pci-e 3.0 slot yet right?
    Would the z77 come with breaking new technology?
    Cooler Master HAF X Big Tower

    I would go for AMD! Go for BIOSTAR... So far their newest AMD is A960D+ Ver.6.x

    you can also check Biostar A960A3+ 6.x

    depends also from your referrence..does your brother play games a lot?
