Need *fast* answer, buying at the store right now, please help!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I was going to buy Asus Z170 PRO GAMING, but the guy right before me already bought their last in stock.

My alternatives for my budget are: Asus Z170-A or Gigabyte Z170X-Gaming 5 or MSI Z170A Gaming Pro

Please help, thank you!

EDIT: Rest of my build. Planning to OC.
i5 6600k / Noctua NH-D15 / MSI 980Ti Gaming / Corsair Vengeance 2x8GB DDR4

I don't know enough to be able to give an answer, but I see that it has been about 45 minutes since you made this thread. I've been watching to see if someone could give you an answer because it's very early in the morning on a Sunday (5:15 a.m. Central Time for me), and I know that this is normally a very slow time for OCN which means I'm honestly not surprised that you haven't received an answer yet. So what I'm really here to say is that if you're still at the store waiting for an answer, then what I recommend is going back home to maybe get a short list of the best Z170 motherboards that you might be able to buy that should be within your budget. That way, you can go back to the store without worrying about this happening again.

Thank you guys, appreciate the help and efforts.

The reason I had to buy right now and couldn't wait is because I'm on vacation in another city where they have VAT removed (17%) for most electronic products, so I took this opportunity to buy parts for my new rig. The thing is you can't order anything, you have to be physically present at the store and can only buy what they have in stock, but it's well worth the 17% discount.

They ended up finding me the last Asus Z170 Pro Gaming they had in stock. I would have probably got the Gigabyte one if the the Asus wasn't eventually available.

You're welcome! I'm relieved.
