    Hi there,

    Do u live by any chance close to Microcenter?
  4. Depending on Budget .....

    $185 ASUS P8Z77-V
    $210 ASUS P8Z77-V PRO...
    $240 ASUS P8Z77 Sabertooth
    $340 ASUS P8Z77 WS

    But considering the CPU choice, I'd go for the 1st in the list above

    yeah that is a great deal. I may stick with getting the 3450 and I can get the asus mobo for 135, but i may change my mind and get the asrock deal. thanks again!
  15. That deal is only if purchased with the i5 3570K processor : )

    If i get the 3450 from micro for 150 and the mobo from newegg at 135 (openbox) its $185 for the better mobo but lesser cpu.

    or there was the bundle with the 3570k and asrock from microcenter which you showed me and now I am torn about which one to get
  17. I wouldn't buy open box, as in most cases there are the accessories missing when people returned it without it.

    But maybe not in your case.
  18. Look, its a great price to pay to get much better CPU.

    Intel Core i5-3570K :D

    i think you may have convinced me to go with the better cpu now.

    so you are saying its worth going with the asrock and the better cpu over the better mobo and lesser cpu
  20. Hey, it will last u longer with top performance.

    And u can have wireless video transfer to your TV : ) Nice feature.
  21. Best answer
    It is a quality mobo, and since u don't have the desire for OC, it is just fine.

    The CPU will give u more performance.

    The mobos are in most all the same performers if u don't OC.
