First off I'm brand new to the site and to pc building so thank you to anyone that decides to give their input. Going thru several different sites to review dozens of motherboards (with every single one having mixed reviews) has left me with more questions than answers. Basically I'd like a mobo with wifi capabilities and audio built in just to simplify things. Wired internet isn't really an option for me at this point. I'm looking at either the 5820k or the less expensive 6600k and from what I can tell the extra cores in the 5820k would give only minor noticible improvement over the 6600k. Opinions on that would also be appreciated. I'm going to be getting a GTX 980 ti if that helps any. Here are the mobos I've been seriously considering:
Asus Z170-deluxe MSI x99a gaming 9 ack eatx
both have come with extremely mixed reviews and make it sound like doa boards are fairly common. Any info or advice would be extremely appreciated!
