Not sure what the z97 really is but it seems interesting and the mobos seems to be cheapper than z87 (according to [This]), which means the cpus could be cheapper than I7. So, I was wondering should I buy an I7+Extreme4 now or buy FX6300+FM2A88M Ext.4+ then upgrade to "Z97" when it comes out??

Hi,
The FX 6300 is not compatible with the FM2+ motherboard. AM3+ is what you need for FX 6300. If you have the money for i7, get that one. If you are only going to use your PC just for gaming, get i5 4670k, since the games can't utilize the Hyperthreading feature on the i7

I will be gaming and little bit of audio editing (FL Studio), Is that okay with an I5?
