This is overall less than each components front page pricing, all three individually being front page deals within the past week.

Realistically its a super solid setup. I had this configured in my cart on newegg, the mobo and ram were already a combo. Woke up the next morning to $65 off. Sold.

The only drawbacks to the z170 is that broadwell/haswell and x99 have more pci express lanes. But skylake has a better single core top speed.

If you want SLI and lots of lanes for Sata, USB C, PciE, then this probably isnt for you. But a single card gaming setup will see no better bang for the buck.

Edit: Here is a review of the board. http://www.tweaktown.com/reviews/...index.html

it'll handle dual cards fine as well, I wouldn't recommend more than two cards anyhow unless you're running 4k and want higher fps

It has been hard to keep track of how many PCI-e lanes you need. PCI-e gen.2 had 2x the bandwidth per lane of gen.1, and gen.3 is 2x of gen.2. So, if you want to think of this board in PCI-e gen.1 terms, it is the equivalent of 64 PCI-e gen.1 lanes.

I don't think that there is any video card that will utilize all the bandwidth of an x8 (gen.3) slot, and I'm not even sure that there is a single card that can cap out x4. (I haven't kept track of whether this has been tested on the GTX 1080.) Basically, you can trust that Intel knew what they were doing with this spec. Also, Nvidia is not suporting more than 2-way SLI with the Pascal line.

This is NOT a slick deal.

I don't understand why people are spending premiums on DDR4 ram. There's no real-world reason for it. You can buy ram for $40 cheaper and still have be within 1% performance of spending $40 more. DDR3 1333MHz can probably be within 3% performance of this expensive ram.

I'm not too crazy about this mobo. Its not bad, there are mobos that are way better for a little more ($40), and very good ones that compare to this mobo for $40 less.

If you have your eyes set on this particular mobo, and want some epeen 3400MHz DDR4 ram, then this might be a good deal, but really, getting super fast ram is like getting 64GB of ram. There are other things that are bottlenecking and ram is definitely not the one causing it.

Agreed. The RAM and the Motherboard are overkill imo. I put together a setup for $465 using Amazon/Microcenter

Hi, which motherboards would you recommend me for 40 bucks more that does not bottleneck a 6700k, gtx single 1080 setup?

Do the MBs you are referring to for $40 less have all the same features as the GA-Z170X-Gaming 7?

Not bad. But I got a better deal with very similar specs.

Corsair 3200 DDR4 $68.39 (Newegg 10% coupon)
6700k $310 (ANTonline)
Asrock Fatal1ty Z170 PRO $129.99 After rebate

= $508

I like Gigabyte MB's but I think the Asrock has more functionality. And the 3400 DDR4 premium can't be more than $15 so my total deal would be $523.
