    x99 Motherboard Suggestions Requested

    coquito

      Hi

       

      I'm putting together a system for ae and ppro. I think I'm settled on a 5930k, a GTX 970, 16GB ram to start (expanded when i get more money/when ddr4 prices come down).

       

      What board would people recommend ?   I'm partial to asus, but I see that there are other x99 boards that take up to 128 GB ram, while all the asus boards only take up to 64.

       

      Also, are there any particular ssds and hds that people would recommend ?

       

      Do you guys think that a mobo's built-in raid controller is good enough or would you recommend a separate controller card ?

       

      Thanks a lot in advance.
