I am not familiar with the OC potential of that board, and the performance difference between Ivy and Haswell is pretty minimal....not enough to really justify the cost.

Plus i love the features on the new z87 Boards biggrin.gif


1st Option: i7 3770k+MSI MPOWER+Hyper 212 evo $553.56 = Awsome Motherboard + Ivy overclocks better and runs cooler i hear

2nd Option: i7 4770k+MSI-GD65 Gaming+Hyper 212 evo $526.99 = Newer Socket + More performance per MHz When overclocking i heard somewhere, like a 4770k
OC'd to 4200MHZ is equal to a 3770k OC'd to 4500MHz?
Is that true?

MSI GD65 Gaming: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00D12OBEU/ref=ox_sc_act_title_3?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER


I know that there isnt much of a performance increase, but the $50 difference in the motherboard saves me about $20.... Due to the price of the 4770k but i got to thinking, is there really any point in going for a dead socket? Also, Will intels Haswell-E be having a different socket? (Just incase one day i hit the lottery and can afford one XD) Also, I know, Lots of questions.... But would you/Should i go for the gtx 770 SuperClocked with ACX Cooling? Or should i go with the Readon 7970 GHz Edition... Either way i will end up using crossfire or sli in the future, But by then ill have the AX760 Platnuim modular power supply because i want the best (By best i mean reliable) power supply to saftley OC and Run SLI/Crossfire

Both are in my budget ($556 and a few cents) so it really doesnt matter to me, I just want the best performance(OC'ing comes into play with performance in my perspective)

get the newer tech, grab the GD45 instead IMO. you should be able to hit 4.2-4.4 with ease. also haswell-e is socket 2011-3, so different socket. but yes other cpus will come out for 1150. z87 is nice for its other features like pcie 3 4-6 sata 3 and I think you get a micro pcie as well. and don't get to caught up with psus a solid 750w or 675w will be fine, the ax760i is overpriced for what you get.


edit: Also platinum doesn't been more reliable, it just means more efficient. they can break too ya know.
And 770 vs 7970, get whatever, they are both great cards, 7970 is better at 1440p+.

I've had Numerous people tell me to grab the new tech, But i just dont see the point in it. Like, if the Ivy bridge to Haswell performance difference is so little whats the point? The prices are WAY bigger than ivy

Haswell is about as future proof as Ivy.....in that it isn't.

Nothing is keeping Intel committed to socket 1150, and Intels track record is they will dump it after a few revisions or a generation....as far as most can see, there really isn't much in the road map for 1150 that is a HUGE performance gain. Then again at this point we can only make guesses....

People say to buy the new tech because it is "new" and thus "better". rolleyes.gif Frankly, the price premium of Haswell doesn't even come close to justifying the cost of it. Also, the other person citing PCI-E 3 as a reason to get a Z87 chipset is a bit silly, in that you get PCI-E 3 with Z77 as well. Furthermore, we aren't even fully saturating PCI-E 2 yet, let alone 3.

You are going to be about where the MSi MPower is, solid.

Well, It is $9 cheaper, But red doesnt really mix with my blue case (Blue led's and blue led fans) Yellow and black wont look as bad, Plus from what ive heard from you, the MPOWER is a solid board and apparently worth it.

Oh, and one more thing, DON'T LEAVE ME! BE MY FRIEND biggrin.gif lol
