Your gonna be a happy camper thats all im gonna say.. I went from a 1055t @ 4ghz to a i7 930.. and that felt like a rocket ship jump.. So 1055t to 3770k gonna be like being shot to the moon lol.

Yeah I don't necessary wanna go cheap on the mb bu the cheaper the better smile.gif lol, sorry if this is more off topic but when you buy a mb what do you usually look at spec wise to help you determine if it's a good board overall and for ocing? Btw +rep for the op and the person who mentioned that frys could price match.

Intel chipset is so much better that the MB is not so important.. You just get the colors and options you want and make sure it is a Z77 chipset..

But the Cheapest Highend board is the G1 Sniper 3 and it has a billion options.

But the best boards are gonna be Gigabyte and Asus then ASrock..

Still 10+ at the Philadelphia/St. Davids location, the Long Island location, and the Yonkers location. Just a heads up to anyone interested.

I need to know, should I drive 3.5 hours to buy this? 400 mile round trip to the store and back, 1 tank of gas=$50 in gas, but I'm still saving over $100 even after gas is factored in. It would make a nice road trip BTW. confused.gif

Actually it's $319 on newegg. I'd only be saving about $40. Naw, screw it.
