    New PC build

    I was wondering when you guys think Z97 board will come down?

    Right now my builds goes as follows

    The Z97 sabertooth is 100 more........I will prolly pull the trigger in the next 3 to 4 months.

    You know anyone looking for a super responsive I7 920. I actually hate to get a new PC, but my boards audio went out but I use my video card hdmi anyway. I figure the board prolly has 6 to 10 months before she goes out. I had her for a long time and still get 60 FPS playing WoW. I get no stutters. Overall it is a very good build. Even though it is triple channel ram, I have mixed ram and she runs fine.........

    Any input?

    I believe the next gen CPU is due for release end of year, so I wouldn't expect much to happen in the way of prices till then.

    All parts listed seem pretty good, I've had really good results with G.Skill ram (last few builds going back to 08)

    just looked back, last board i got was a z77 at the end of 2013. ...

    All opinions are not equal. Some are a very great deal more robust, sophisticated and well supported in logic and argument than others.

    I changed my boards since 3.1 USB offers so many advantages all the way around....I am kinda in limbo though with the choice.....Since PC Cases don't have 3.1 USB headers yet.....

    My new board will be http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813132507

    Since new cases wont be out until they are guessing sept/oct I have the chip power supply and ram sitting doing nothing. I was about to buy the Z87 sabertooth when it was 89 dollars after rebates, but just couldn't go with 3 year old tech with so much faster data transfers about to take place.

    the pcie card doesnt address PC cases not having usb 3.1 headers yet silly man and there are 2 in the back of that mobo, but i want all my things to match up because soon there will be a 3.1 mouse, 3.1 keyboard, 3.1 joystick, etc.....and i dont want usb 2.0 on my case just 3.0 and 3.1
