Hi all

My old motherboard just crapped out and it had a lifetime warranty.
EVGA did not have a replacement so the are sending me this, what do you think of the new motherboard?

New motherboard EVGA Z170 FTW P/N 140-SS-E177-KR

Old Motherboard was EVGA 132-CK-NF78 nForce 780i SLI

and I need to get new CPU, Memory, SSD boot drive, 2 TB storage. going with my old video card for a little while, Evga GTX 560Ti

any suggestions would be appreciated?

and is my power supply big enough? Thermaltake Toughpower 750w

Around $1200 to spend, the amount is a little flexible.

Nice that EVGA held to the lifetime warranty agreement!
Nice specs.. http://www.evga.com/products/Product.as ... SS-E177-KR
That GTX560 Ti has two versions.. one wants only 170 watts, the deluxe version wants 210 watts!
The PSU may be marginal, if upgrading with a newer CPU and other features.
But after four or five years of use, a PSU may be getting a bit tired.
Especially its fan(s). But maybe a thorough clean out and check the fan(s) for free spin.

Thermaltake make good stuff and 750W should be fine unless you are intending to SLI.
I don't bother with storage drives inside PCs nowadays. I just use a 512GB SSD and use a NAS for backup and storage. Much less hassle having one version of a file rather than loads of versions on different computers.

I am not currently read up on the latest CPU/RAM/SSDs but it looks like you've got a decent budget.
