[Anand] Haswell Z87 Motherboard Preview: 50+ Motherboards - Page 7

post #61 of 124
Gigabyte have really outdone themselves this generation. I have always gone with Asus but Gigabyte is clearly superior this time. Definitely picking up a G1 Sniper 5 when they launch. My Asus MIVE-Z has been a nuisance ever since I got it. 1 NIC doesn't work, PCI-E lanes are screwed if you put a sound card in, computer hangs every single cold boot, PCI-E slots are now failing after a year (gpu and ram blink rapidly in bios, random bsod when launching a game in crossfire).

3770K is the same deal except at 229.99. 3770K is a great processor so if youre in need go for it.

Same here. I am sure a lot of people are in the same boat. I am debating between a trip to Atlanta and picking up a 3770k for $230, waiting on Haswell, or just stretching the budget a bit and picking up a 3930k.

Either way I am building a new machine next month. Just going to sit back for a couple weeks and see what happens. I've had this build for 4 years now, whats a few more days.

Thats what I thought and most people say, then a few people will make just enough argument to make me want to spend more on a PLX board.
