    I am simple confussed since here in AUS getting new 1150 boards only shows 1 2slot board but there are some that look healthy and was wondering what to chose.

    I game with a Msi Z97 PC MATE 1070 G1 8GB 32gb Ram and the i7 4790 I dont plan overclocking but want to make sure its not cheap.

    I say the asus Z87-C and Z87-K and cannot chose plus there just under 100$ but there are better boards but I have no need the msi board I have is starting to age and it has 2 cpu pins bent by pure luck it lasted a year but I am noticing speed issues slow games even csgo and css seem to stutter more and I'v tried all the stuff on my friends old pc and his G2200 with my 1070 and tested it on his spare 1150 board but it has 4x slot from a dell system and the ram are fine.



    Heres the List

    100$ AU

    Asus Z87-C

    Asus Z87-K

    ROG MAXIMUS VI Z87

    https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/ROG-MAX...658719?hash=item3db621931f:g:FosAAOSwbVVfs8Pu

    I thinking of the Z87-K since more VRM
    But if C better of let me know

    :)

    I know there only decent boards to chose from I am hoping the Z87 is my best bet 100$ plus 4 ram slots for my ram and planty of stuff.

    Yes I know cost of hardware in AUS is horrendis a MSRP new gpu like a 3090 is 3000$ AU 2300US that is the cheapest card.

    Why throw money at a dead plate form?

    Excellent single core performance and low heat.
    Everything since then hasn’t improved significantly unless you need the extra 4 / 6 / 12 cores.

    Now that AMD is smoking them, and they;ve got a new team, I have faith they will strike back sooner than the “leaked” roadmaps declare.

    If not, an AMD 5750G APU (desktop) later this year will replace my i7/4790k’s.

    I use the ASRock Rack H97 and Z97 because I use 1U ATX Chassis. Great boards still available but you’d have to break down and spend 200-230 bucks. They last for years.

    I was all ready to say don't bother with either of those and pick up a Z97 chipset Maximus Vii as they are really cheep.

    But I just checked the Australian ebay site and the cheapest working one on there is $430!! Yikes!!
    And I thought England was bad for prices at the moment!

    How about this Asus z97k, it's a bit cheaper than the one you linked:
    https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/ASUS-In...c8:g:flAAAOSwjXVazcJf&LH_BIN=1&frcectupt=true

    I'd try and get z97 if you can. You'll loose M.2 support if you don't. Very handy if you want to upgrade your SSD in the future.

    The Haswell platform is still very viable today for everything other than rendering. I'm holding out on a 4.7Ghz 4790K in my gaming PC and a 4.2Ghz 4930K (Ivy Bridge) in my general use PC. They both still do everything I ask of them.
    To upgrade now is insane anyway, with prices and availability being what they are.
    If I replaced my 4930k PC with a like for like build (I.E quad channel, 40x pci-e lanes, high end motherboard, RAM, PSU, case etc.) it would cost something like £3000. I think I paid £1500 new, if that.
    Motherboards are stupidly priced now too. I think I paid £120 for my Maximus Vii new. A Motherboard of that quality costs in the region of £300 today and £120 won't even get you on to the best chipset. Crazy times.

    Persoanally i`d go for a z97 that has an m.2 slot...at least you`ll have some thing to upgrade, you`d be limited to pci-e 3 and probably x2 but will be better than sata 3.
