Haswell Buy-In estimates?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So what do you guys and gals think the buy-in will be for a high-ish range Haswell-based build?

Definately not not looking to do multiple water loops for CPU + Video + Chipset. Will likely use a 360mm Rad for CPU only and leave the Titans on air, along with the chipset.

I'm gonna get a 4770K and I'm thinking of buying a higher end MSI Mpower or Asrock Fatality or Asus ROG board this time instead of the the GD65 series from MSI that I've been using for several years now. An admitted lack of knowledge about Asrock reliability has left me with only lukewarm interest in that brand, but I have heard some good things about them so I'm not ready to eliminate them from consideration. Gigabyte? Meh...My previous experiences with their boards left a bad taste in my mouth.

Is there a consensus about an early Z87 favorite board?

get the cheapest hardware you can get - haswell is going to be a flop biggrin.gif

I am hoping so much to be wrong redface.gif

I'm setting aside 350 for the 4770K and 250 for the Z87 motherboard. Need something that can handle 2666+ memory.

Possibilities :

Mpower
OC Formula
Hero

I should be smart and just grab a 3770K and Z77 for half of that at MC but i'd still want the newest tech
