Can confirm. Used this board on another build before I bought the 7700k. It's a pretty solid board.

Why are you getting a 7700 over a 7700K?

Not everyone wants/needs to overclock. I'm not an overclocker myself and performance at stock is great anyway.

But he still never said that. And even if he doesn't the 7700K still is faster

The performance increase is negligible at stock between the two.

I know, but the point is he never said that he didn't want to overclock.

Modern boards are typically made for big ass cards like that, you are fine.

all gtx 1000 series cards will work. 

i was making a joke about how big the card is. the thing takes up 3 slots worth of space and weighs more than your average GPU. I'm willing to bet that alot of motherboards that don't have reinforced pcie slots would sag and possibly break with this card especially if you have to move your pc.

I don't want to overclock, the stock speed is enough for me
