At the end of the day I could not justify not taking the deal. $400 for both Asrock Extreme4 and 4770k CPU is just a good deal considering Haswell is like 15 minutes old. I understand that it could drop a little in the future but I thought about it and basically I paid $120 for the Asrock Extreme 4 (Newegg sells it for $160 right now) and I paid $279 for the 4770k CPU(NewEgg is $349). Grand total $399. I thought to myself how much can it drop ? $10? $20 ?
I just don't see much price change and having it now as opposed to waiting months; and not waiting months is worth $10 possibly.
Had I got anything LGA1155 I would have regretted it since 1155 is now done. And I had I tried to save a few bucks on the lower CPU I also would have regretted it.
I'm hoping it's a worthy replacement for my 2600k.
In the end the big deal was not just that the 4770k is better than the 3770k or whatever... it's that Z87 is better than Z77. There is some extras in the Z87 Asrock Extreme I liked.
