qwerty123,
I recommend you follow Slugnet's build description setup if you're going to add a 660 Ti graphics card. He's using an i7-3770K vs my i5-3550K, but that shouldn't make a difference. When you use a graphics card, the motherboard and graphics card are the critical components in an Ivy Bridget system. So, go with Slugnet's system setup.

hello I would like if you can boot from a USB flash drive USB2.0 port in front of the tower


me if I want to install using the usb or started on a usb hard drive I have connected to USB 2.0 port on rear of the tower that it is selectable as boot drive


usb ports on the front 2.0 and 3.0 works only after the system started
and what is the same thing for you?

I used the front (case) panel USB 2 port which worked as expected. However, I don't have USB 3 peripherals, so I'm not much help with getting USB 3 working.

strange ..... me if I put a USB key al front of the tower and I press F12 at startup I do not see the key to booting from it


if I put it on the back usb 2.0 F12 I am able to start over selected
by against everything works fine after the system starts
I tried the usb 2.0 red and black on the mainboard and it is the same thing .......
