Stick With ASUS P8Z77-V PRO Or Get The Deluxe

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Yesterday I picked up a 3770K and an ASUS P8Z77-V PRO from microcenter. Now I dont need onboard DVI or VGA since I have a GPU. The deluxe has more USB ports and a dual antenna wifi card where the pro has 1 (i dont use wireless so this doesnt matter). The deluxe has dual LAN but I only need 1. What I am trying to get to is, Is the deluxe worth the extra $50? I mean the Pro seems fine, although the deluxe has debug LED's and the power and reset buttons straight on the board like my crosshair IV.

TLDR: Is the Deluxe worth the extra $50

I am in the same boat as you. I currently have to PRO. I am can't decide to keep it or return it and get the deluxe or I was even looking at the Asrock Fatal1al PRO. From the looks of it the PRO has all your needs so why not save couple bucks and put it towards something else.

I agree, stick with the pro. You seem to have addressed most of the things the deluxe has over the pro, but shot them down as things you don't need. If you don't need the dual lan/wifi, it's not worth the upgrade. More USB, but are you really running out? Surely, you could use the headers or a hub. The onboard DVI could prove useful for troubleshooting or if you want to add a quick and easy third monitor. I snagged a used Z68 deluxe, wish I had gotten a pro instead, because the DVI is nice to have and dual LAN does nothing for me.
$50 + the hassle of switching doesn't seem worth it to have debug LEDs and a power/reset button on the board.

Running out on the board, yes, two left, Front pannel still has all 4 open.
