it was suggested i get a 790 series board and i''ve been looking at the prices on those and they seem a bit pricey. i'm wondering if i would do just as well with maybe a 780 or 750 or something like that.
another thing, do full atx boards have any advantage over micro atx becauase many of the boards i were looking at seem to be micro and to me the micro's seemed a bit more price friendly.
some boards i was considering...let me know what you think please.

these are just a couple of full atx boards i was considering, there are also a bunch of 780 series micros i was looking at as well.
