At least you have a Micro Center near you. The closest to my area is 3 hours away at least. I would have sprung for the 3770k at those prices if I lived closer to one.

Yeah I hear you only reason I can't push is just paid the rent and the car also the health insurance

and you know have to cover home base first then see what you have left to work with plus this would be my barb for my Aug 31 Anniversary gift I'm thinking ahead and what better way to break it down to her

It wasn't a bad board, but something on it never felt quite right, I can't put my finger on it, I was not keen on the overall look of it in my case in the end as it is actually not a full size ATX board.(They trimmed like an inch or around that off the width).
It would not overclock at well as my Sabertooth, I think I managed 4.9GHz on the Asrock.
Also I could not get my 2400MHz ram to run properly at full speed, I had to drop it down to 2200MHz for full stability.
The Sabertooth just runs it flawlessly at 2400MHz.

Looks like that $155.00 Sabertooth is open box and display that's a big gamble not sure if i want to go there

So the is there another Asus board that is of the same caliber I saw the Asus deluxe but still kind of pricey

Ok I am on the phone about the Sabertooth all open boxed and display items they told me the pins were damaged

im going to Bite the bullet and get this package I feel that paul gave me the best advice and I don't need 5 ghz overclocks 4.7 4.8 is fine with me

This Bundle is Asrock extreme 4 per pauls advice this should be ok


I can get this today if I play my cards right this would probably be the best path
to victory being on such short notice

You should be fine with 4.8-4.9 yeah Solar, just don't bother with 2400MHz ram, stick with a max of 2133MHz if you are planning to buy some ram.

Good luck and keep us posted.
