ASUS is like buying a Mercedes; ASUS is a premium motherboard brand. So you pay more over the competitors, not necessarily for any particular benefits.
That said, prime differentiators between these ASrock models are:
Available PCI-E / mini-PCI-E slots (Extreme6 has more)
Additional ports (Extreme6 has onboard DisplayPort support for onboard video, as well as few other lesser-used ports like IEEE 1394)
Otherwise, they are identical.
As for the ASUS boards:
LK board does not support DDR3-2600
LK board uses Realtek ethernet port while standard uses higher-quality Intel one
Standard V comes with built-in wireless support, LK does not
so with that being said, i have no idea what the things are that you named out so that automatically means i have no need for them.
just for a gaming rig that i might want to run SLI on the ASRock Z77 Extreme4 and the ASUS P8Z77-V LK are just fine.
im guessing neither one has an upper hand on the other, just asus being a bigger name and thus making it tad bit more expensive
Both plugged in will give CPU enough juice if it ever uses more than what these 4 pin provides.
Most youtube videos max out at 720p (1280x720), so you should be OK, but 1080p (1920x1080) may look a little strange if you do full screen with it on your resolution.
Kalganized, I finally got my beast up and running, but I have one more question. Regarding games and their installers, is it possible to download a game's installer (such as WoW or D3) on to my hard drive and then install the actual game itself onto my SSD? If so, how would I do that?
So when I download the client off the battle.net site for either game, I can specify it to my hard drive, then choose my SSD when it's time to install the actual game? Awesome, thanks!
Also, I'm assuming I can do the same with Steam correct? Have Steam on my hard drive and install the games I buy onto my SSD?
