And excellent descriptions. In the past year or so, they have really gone downhill. Every time I turn around, they are out of products or discontinuing them (or claiming to discontinue them). It's really a shame.
So i am not the only one who noticed they put a discontinued marker on products you can still find at other stores brand new what's up with that ?

Short of insanity, I have no explanation for it.

I have noticed in some cases (at least in the past) that Newegg has the more current product listed - the latest version - and discontinues older versions as new stuff comes out.
Amazon, retail stores, and others tend to offer the old versions out for sale long after they are replaced. You have got to be aware.

I understand this as well but when it is a particular item you bought and you go to look it up either it's not listed or they have a discontinued on it already like the Z77 Sabertooth people still buy them but Newegg is done with them unless it's used or refurbished

Z77 boards have quit being made. Z77 boards are scarcer than Hen's teeth now. If you need one and find one at a reasonable price, buy it right now or you'll never see it again. Amazon.com: Buying Choices: ASUS SABERTOOTH Z77 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

I assume pretty soon it will be best to upgrade away from Z77 not sure when that will be though

True, all those are from China I think.

Tommy, I think the next upgrade maybe worth doing is the so called Haswell refresh, and the Z9x series chipset.

There have been unconfirmed rumors that the Z9x chips will support DDR4 too. I think that will take a whole new set of CPUs. People like to talk.
