ASUS Z87 Deluxe Socket LGA 1150 ATX Intel Motherboard
Hey guys, just a quick question that i need a quick answer to haha.. I have the opportunity to buy this motherboard, the ASUS Z87 Deluxe Socket LGA 1150 ATX Intel Motherboard, for $40.. apparently its almost 200 or more normally so would this be a safe and good buy for me to make? i might build a computer with it or just resell it if anyone knows a safe and good way to do that but yeah.. is it worth it for me to buy it?
Thanks again guys =)
Thanks again guys =)
you could easily build a system from it and for $40 it is a good cheap base to work from. you could also sell it as is but you would probably see a better return by building it into a system. folks buying a full system usually care not what the parts are and would not know a good one or bad one if they saw it. but someone buying a mobo alone would probably know what they were getting and might not pay a lot. i'd ask around $75-80 for it alone used and about $100 for it new. but this would go in my area and of course your area may vary.
the amd onboard is a lot better than intel's. by a rather wide margin. it will definitely need a separate card to be of any gaming use. staying in the $300 is range you spoke of, that would be something like an r9-270 or so which with an i3 will run 1080p on mid to high settings pretty easily for all but the most demanding games.
Alright so ive come up with this build using the motherboard.. to save making a new topic is it alright if i ask you which of these two builds is better and if you have any suggestions? The 400 is a little pricey but if it outperforms the 300 a lot ill save up
did some tinkering with the i3 build and for the same price i changed out the sd to a reg hdd, cheaper psu that is decent and a much better gpu. price is about the same and it will be a lot better than the a10 build. did you notice there is no ram in either build? was this on purpose as you already have some to use?

otherwise the a10 is about the same graphics as the 100 card you put with the i3 so that would be about the same performance for less cash. these changes make the extra $100 worth it for the big improvement.
