    I'm not being a hater by any means, Im just looking at that extremely low price, and poor reviews.. I personally like ASUS.

    I just did a build for my buddy using the ASUS P8Z77-LX, that's in the same level as that gigabyte board. Just also know that if you are planning this to be a gaming machine, it's really only good for 1 GPU (the 2nd pcie16x slot is @ 4x), which should be enough for most anyways

    Yeah, we don't discriminate around here but we are open to all board options as long as they are compatible chipsets. :mrgreen:

    Give Gigabyte time. (fanboy) :lol:

    I think I'm going to wait for Mountain Lion to be released before I get my computer parts.. wanna make sure the 670 is running perfect by the time it arrives

    I'd recommend only Sony, Pioneer or LG optical drives. Apple has only used Sony and Pioneer in their desktops for ages, and, thus, Apple OS X is friendly with these manufacturers' drives.

    The tonymacx86 Recommend Builds (and Components) recommends the Sony optical drive. I'm using both Sony and LG optical drives both of which work flawlessly. (See links in my signature block for tonymacx86 Recommend Builds and my build descriptions.) Note: Other makes of optical drives have been reported to give problems when installing Snow Leopard and/or problems with sleep/wake-up. So, I'd stick with the known/proven brands.
