Im looking into upgrading my mobo and graphics card as well as getting a back up hdd setup and getting a SSD to hold my programs for faster load times.
Right now I am looking into the AMD FirePro V5900 graphics card (I do alot of modeling and cfd as I am an engineering student)
Im split between an ASUS or GIGABYTE mobo though. I had an ASUS xhair for awhile when I first did my build, replaced by an ASROCK unit (stupid choice) and I really like ASUS as a brand but im not sure about getting a regular board from them as opposed to a gaming board.
Here are the 2 im looking at:
I mention the HDD and SSD setup just to see if anyone has any suggestions. My current HDD is a 500GB so Ill be getting the same thing again, Seagate Barracuda 500GB drive. I am currently looking at an OCZ Trion 120GB SSD.
If anyone has any opinions of either of those boards or the SSD please let me know, issues or praise and otherwise.
