Should I regret just buying a z87 asus motherboard already?

I literally just bought a z87 board without doing any research into the new broadwell or devils canyon cpus.... I jumped onto the board because it was 170$ and I got it for 117$. I know the new cpus wont blow haswell out of the water but I wish I did a little more research :( (cant return the board btw). But what I havent done was buy a cpu for this board yet and I was wondering if the core i7 4770k would get a price drop with the new haswell refresh? Im looking for a hyper threaded cpu because I noticed more games like watch dogs would use 8 cores. Maybe a xeon e31230v3?

  1. what board? the new CPUs are Haswell refresh and devils canyon, which is pretty much just haswell with better TIM. The real trick of the z97 boards is the compatibility with the 14nm broadwell chips that are coming.

    You could try and sell it, but theres not much point, you may as well build off it, and look at the Xeon e3 1240v3, its clocked a bit higher ;)

    Look at it this way, I had no regrets buying my motherboard and CPU, and the Phenom II line has been dead for years. Just because its not the newest thing, dosent mean its not great.

  4. Intel generally does not drop the price of their CPU's. The 1230v3 is a good idea.
