The Z97A/USB 3.1 (http://m.newegg.com/Product/index?itemnumber=N82E16813132510&ignorebbr=1) looks like it huts everything I need. I'd like to keep my Audigy 2zs Platinum, as I have yet to hear about...

I'd like to have the option. When I got it, it was cheaper than the non-k version, but yeah, I would like to be able to. Nothing extreme, though. I'm not going to be doing the old DFI dry ice junk.

Nah, it'll probably be from Newegg or similar. Under (and up to) $150. Still haven't heard from Gigabyte, but I need to wait until my tax return comes in if I'm going to buy a new board.

Ended up getting a Corsair Strafe. I also got a new replacement plan, and because it is cheaper than the g710+, I ended up getting a $32 gift card from Best Buy.

I kind of prefer the smaller size of the K65. A little usb numerical keypad could live under the monitor shelf of my desk that I built, when not in use.

Though, another idea I had was to use the...

I'm leaning toward the K65 myself. I'd need to pick up a usb numerical keypad, as I use it fairly regularly, but it'd be nice to have the little bit of extra desk real estate when I'm not.

Yeah, I'll try that. Though the fact that I still couldn't get Windows to install onto the other drive in the system with the SSD disconnected tells me that it's something beyond just the SSD.
