      I am considering a mothermoard that expands to 128gb RAM. The system will orginally start out with 32 gb RAM.

       

      Right now, I am considering 2 mobos

      ASRock X79 Extreme6 LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

      $229

      or

       

      MSI Big Bang-XPower II LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 XL ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

      $380

      I am wondering if it is worth the dollars to get the highend MSI board mostly because of the high RAM support. \

       

      When ever I rebuild from scratch it is beacause I need a new system with more memory.

       

      thanks for the advice
