Ok, so here is my dilemma, a few months ago I decided to go for Intel 4670k and Asus Z87-Pro, + 8gb of some 50 euro ram. But when I found out that the new ivy e 4820k is going to be cheaper then the 4770k intel and it was soldered, I changed my mind. The problem is my budget is 500 euros, and I would need to skimp on the motherboard. Here are some motherboard I'm thinking about: GIGABYTE GA-X79-UD3 (180 euros) GIGABYTE GA-X79-UP4 (180 euros) ASROCK X79 Extreme3 (180 euros) EVGA X79 SLI (185 euros) ASUS P9X79 (215 euros) So any advice? Is it a bad idea to go for one of these mother boards?
