Was getting Asrock p67, but now G3 is out...

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
So yeah, was going to get this board, asrock p67 extreme 4b3...
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813157229

But I found out this morning that the G3 version is out (and hella sexy in all black) and can be had for about $10 more...

So, I am a total intel noob and wanted a consensus about getting the G3. I assume I probably should for the pci-e 3.0 future proofing, but just wanted some opinions. Excuse if this is a dumb question, but I won't be upgrading for a long time and I want to do it right!

thanks!

I'd advise caution if the price difference was larger but If it's only $10 then the question boils down to: why not?

Kinda what I was thinking, just wary a little bit since obviously there isn't much out review-wise concerning the g3 boards.

You could wait for reviews. Asrock has been a roll lately, I never considered their motherboards until I saw their recent P67 lineup do so well. There's every indication that their Gen3 lineup will be a success as well.

Being an ASRock Extreme4 owner myself, I'd recommend going with whichever looks better to you.

I saw this deal on Sunday and ordered it. The board was shipped yesterday. I plan on putting the build together this weekend. So I say go for it.
