3 sata SSDs. I'll take a look at the 3200 memory kit too.

unless you are going to do alot of benchmarking do not get the apex.

also, take a look at asus's memory vendor list. you'll find that the apex has not got the variety like the hero has.

if the main purpose of your build is gaming and the occasional rendering (etc...) then the hero wins.
Prepare for the worst. Assume losing. Then... if the opposite occurs... BONUS!
