Well it doesn't necessarily need a mining configuration mode. You guys could just allow more GPUs to be added then what the mobo supports, and then just list an incompatibility warning at the bottom about it not supporting that many cards.

You definitely need water cooling if you plan on doing heavy OC. You said yourself that you are new to OCing, so I would highly recommend you look into that for your own rig.

You can get a decent closed loop water cooling like the Corsair H100i for only around 100$ and the gains over the Evo 212 are pretty big.

If I was you I would be looking to upgrade that CPU Cooler before anything else. Especially if you have a Costa Rican 4770k which can easily be kept stable at 4.5ghz+ on water.

You might have personally not run into one, but it is a known fact about Windows 8 that 7 is far more stable for gaming. That is the entire reason gamers go with 7.

Air cooling a 4770k.. yikes. You are really gonna want to upgrade that to water cooling as Haswell already runs pretty hot.

You are ignoring the fact that Windows 8 has stability issues with gaming.

You are correct. I was thinking of the 7970. My fault.

I already own the mobo. I bought it in a combo with a 4770k for 536$. I bought it for both aesthetic and practical reasons.

Thanks for the responses. Sounds like I would just be better off going with the EVGA superclocked 780s then.

I bought it and the I7-4770k for 536$ at newegg. It was only 30 dollars more then the GD65 gaming combo.

Thanks for the replies. I decided just to switch up the color scheme and go Black/Yellow/Red with the MPower Max mobo.

Why one earth would you spend 1900$ on an AMD PC? Does that not defeat the entire purpose of AMD (budget gaming)? You may as well have just spent the extra 300$ on an Intel CPU and Mobo.
