The statement you're referring to wasn't intended to be taken quite so literally. I also made that statement 5 days ago, and I have learned a LOT since then. I SHOULD
have said that I was just guessing. I should have used the price range of $175 to $200. I didn't know I'd end up with someone trying to push a $250 motherboard on me.
Furthermore, the Z390 AORUS ULTRA would be nearly $270 after tax. For casual air-cooled overclocking, that would just be an extremely stupid waste of money. I don't care how good that motherboard is, it makes no sense whatsoever for ME
to buy it.
Even the Z390 AORUS PRO
is quite overkill for me, but this is the first major upgrade I have done in 8 years, and I'd like it to be as fun as possible without spending my money too
terribly unwisely or stupidly. I think it would just be too boring to get a much more accurate fit for my needs like the Gigabyte Z390 UD even though it's only about $125 and therefore would be a MUCH smarter purchase. (and since I won't be buying a motherboard until May due to my limited income
, who knows, I may wise up and get that board anyway since I do know it should provide me with everything I want out of my next motherboard and probably a whole lot more).
