  1. There is rebate on this motherboard, if you can get it though you won't be overclocking your cpu:

    PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

    Motherboard: Asus Z77-A ATX LGA1155 Motherboard ($69.99 @ Newegg)
    Total: $69.99
    (Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available.)

    Other options would be:
    Gigabyte GA-H77M-D3H: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/gigabyte-motherboard-gah77md3h
    MSI ZH77A-G43: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/msi-motherboard-zh77ag43
  2. those are nice but i am willing to pay upto $250......saved it by not going for an i7 4770k....
    So looking for motherboards of that range........

    you would be rarely benefited in terms of performance with high end boards. Difference in performance is mostly seen with better graphics card and high end cpu. You can save money now, and pull it out when you really need it.
  4. Damn...Well i went for a cheaper CPU because of the article "http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-cpu-review-overclock,3106.html"
    This was the line they used.........
    "To summarize,we generally recommend against purchasing any gaming CPU that retails for more than $220 from a value point of view (sink that money into graphics and the motherboard instead)"

    if you are looking for gaming point of view, you should have picked up i5-4670K or non-K if you weren't overclocking ever. There are games utilizing cpu cores and their cpu clock speed in major way. The line above is true for now, as even the best high end games don't utilize more than 4 cores for now(in future it will). But there is no point in having a too high end motherboard for a non-overclocking processor as the performance will be almost same and there won't be any stability issues of your processor as it is the case with overclocking processors.
  6. thnx....wishing should have queried for the CPU too....

    that would have been the best, yet that is not a bad cpu. It will still run for some years though. Till then, just enjoy dude without any regrets and save money for the better future ;)
