Hi, I just signed up after it was recommended by a friend to ask the community if the parts I'm buying are okay and such and if they are within my budget so I'll try to give out enough information that I can remember right now and the parts I have. What I'm looking for is maybe someone you know has a better deal and whatnot and what parts I can maybe toss out that might not be useful or over my budget. Thank you guys!
My budget is to be around $800, can't be near $900 and it's for gaming purposes mainly with maybe some other things on the side.
Monitors are already in my house so they're okay. Preferred place to buy would be at Amazon.com.
WTF? AsRock pro4/ pro3 is worst MoBo in market. It has worst power handling to cpu that any Z-77 MoBo has.
As good as asus? Well any real proof of that? Several test testify that power issue what asrock has on pro3 and pro4.
What power issues ?
It has the same power phases as the asus.
it doesnt. asus uses digital pwm while asrock uses the older analog pwm designs. go look in the list in my sig if you want. the pro4 (which is better than the pro3) is not even recommended for overclocking
It overclocks just fine, there's a review of the pro 3, saying that, of course if you want overclocks above 4.5 ghz you need a much better cooler, there's nothing wrong with analog pwm.
The asrock z77 pro 3 or pro 4 is a good board under the price.
The asus is also good, but more expensive.
