Building the GEARBOX: Take on Borderlands 2 With the Ultimate $2500 Gaming PC
ASUS' P8Z77-V DELUXE is a beautiful platform for a gaming rig, loaded with incredible features. While some boards offer features of little value, this one has it where it counts.
I'm particularly fond of their "SMART DIGI+ Power Control" which offers really fine power adjustment for overclockers, making it easier to tweak and get a stable overclock.
It also supports SLI. CrossFireX, PCIe3.0 slots, Intel SRT, hybrid graphics boost, and tons of USB 2 and 3 ports. There's a lot more. Go see for yourself, and check out our review of the similar P8Z77 WS.
