a good z87 motherboard

Want to upgrade my rig with a intel i7 4770k cpu. Is it a good buy? Can you suggest any
motherboard which is compatible with this cpu. I’m looking for the asus sabertooth z87 but not sure. Which will be the best ?
I’m just going to gaming, I have a laptop for other works. just gaming on this.

And yes after seeing lots of review about graphics cards I decided to go with Asus nvidia 780. is there any cards from amd at this budget? may be the 7990 ?

    Sabertooth z87 is overpriced maybe for its armour. More expensive motherboards won't give you more fps in games , and the armour on the mobo serves no purpose other than looking good. I would recommend the Gigabyte UD3H, it's cheaper and will do exactly what the sabertooth does. You Ask about the BEST Gaming Mobo for intel 4th genes .. If Money isn't a problem to you, My answer Is ASUS Z87 MAXIMUS EXTREME VI..Go For it.


    For the CPU, if you're only gaming, I would recommend an Intel i5-4670k instead of the i7. It'll get you the exact same gaming performance, but it'll cost you 100$ less.


    Now the gpu. a 780 is fine and the best till the date. I’ll recommend to the gigabyte one it comes with three fans. Means more cooling performance.

    Are you sure about these? and i don't have the money to buy the extreme. gigabyte then. and why no to 7990. saw some review and every where i saw i can get 40-35% more gaming performance.
  3. yes i'm sure about that. wait for a while and you can see 90% is saying the same.

    MIND IT. you're comparing a single gpu card with a dual gpu card.. 7990 is having two 7970 on the same board.

    reason why no to 7990- dual gpu means more heat issue. we never suggest dual gpu cards to anyone unless he is having 1 or 2 gcard slots. buy the 780 now and you can buy another one after two years when the price will drop.
  4. ok. I'm going with those items that you said. thanks. can you suggest me a good case i need one. my current rosewill is not enough. Its a heat chamber not a cabinet.
  5. Take a look at the Asus Hero, with a 4670K, and the Asus GTX780-3GD5
