Not a great time to be buying into z370 with z390 and 8 core Intel CPUs around the corner.

Decent Intel deal, though I went with the x370+case+PSU offer a few days ago for $90 for team red.

I've only had a desktop from 2004 so it's my first step into higher end desktop computers.

But cost to performance isn't there for me on blue. I'd have to spend over 30% more for a 10% gain in 1080p gaming.

So yeah, I cheaped out and will see how that goes lol

Normally the best deals are for last gen on the way out, which before was still all 4 core anyway. Now its best to buy ryzen since its soo cheap or wait another yr and see what both sides do(maybe pickup up z370 at that time)

I ended up getting a $70 7700k so that made it easy to upgrade as I have been having some stability issues mem/bios/3570k and I was frustrated.

Any way too many people get hung up on upgrading for only 10% performance. My last upgrade was from Q9650 to the 3570k userbench shows 88% faster quad core performance. I had been waiting till another big jump in quad core performance of 80%, well 5yrs later I figured 50% would be good, well 8700k is still only 39% faster quad core. So no big jumps in anything other than more cores, well most normal uses arent using more cores but that is changing like recently I noticed a malware scanner I use was updated to multicore support.

I am still running an i5 4570 and I rather not deal with overclocking. I rather pay a bit more up front than deal with it. I told myself, once Intel jumps on the 6 core bandwagon, I will upgrade. So I have my i5 8400 sitting here waiting for a motherboard. If I can get a z370 in mATX or ITX for $99 its only $20 to $30 more than what will come out in the lower chipset boards early next year. I am ok with that. Ill probably have the 8400 for another 4 to 6 years.

Good deal and almost 50% off but it's a dead end upgrade already.

Intel Z370
Only Support for 8th Generation Intel Core i7/i5/i3 processors in the LGA1151 package

Great for the price and you won't get a Z390 like this for $100 anytime soon.

Sticking with my i7 4790k until Ice lake and see what happens then.

tempting but given i can't get an i7 8700K to test with it is a bit risky to buy mobo without cpu ram to test with.

Flying car is around the corner. I'm sticking with my 1990 Honda Civic until then! tyvm.

You could go with the cheapest i3 for now until you get a hold of a 8700K at a reasonable price.
