that would probably be pretty useless especially when your memory usage would be like 1% even running everything at once. would need a damn good processor to make use of it

The striker does hold the world speed record last time I checked, but I'd still go with the eVGA board. Striker is overpriced, and questionable reliability.

128GB of ram is nothing for some applications (Think: Databases)

Yeah, questionable is right. a few of the ones I've worked with at work would only post video every-other boot. The ones that posted every time seem to have no other problems once they are on "approved" ram.

First I see the Holy Grail of motherboards. I click the link expecting to see the Evga 680I. Then I see the heading on newegg Asus Striker I, LOL and close.

okay then which one do you suggest
this 680i
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131073
or this one
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131142
they are both the same exact thing
but are priced differently
i was eyeballing the
BFG Tech GeForce 8800GTX
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814143093
it has all of the mem that i want and a good core speed
why would getting all EVGA be so important?
all of the other EVGAs are way to expensive for the same(or close to) specs
and the only one that has an acceptable core speed would be this
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130086
it has great core speed but it has less bits and less mem.
if you could explain the pros and cons of each of my choices then i can better understand

while your at it
can you explain why the antec 900 is better than the thermaltake that i have chosen?
i doesnt even have a 3.5" bay
and 2 large 120mm fans in front
i cant even put my 3.5" floppy drive and multicard reader inside
and thats what i want to do, i dont want 1/2 of my equipment on the outside of the case
your input is valued

Well the thing with Evga is its going to overclock way more than the board you have selected.

Not to mention it has a lifetime warranty so if you burn anything up for any reason you can RMA it and get a new board at no cost depending on the Ear program you select. Basic Ear is free you just pay for the shipping back to Evga. They take care of the rest.
