Zen4 will be same way later this year changing to LGA and DDR5 memory motherboards will be $200+ just like Z690
Most reviewers recommend DDR4 at this point since the gains are minor over the price you pay. I got the Gigabyte Z690 UD AX DDR4 motherboard and this RAM:

Should be good for a while
TBH I really did not want to use Windows 11 due to the UI nightmare it is. But after using it for the last 1 month, I did not have any issues. I was able to tackle most UI issues through the settings and workarounds. Performance has been the same as Windows 10 or even better sometimes. I understand wanting to wait for the 22H2 update but I feel even at this point Windows 11 is ready to go.

Gonna also need a new motherboard, from what I've read, so that needs to be factored… and DDR5 ram, unless your new mobo supports old DDR4 ram…

Probably looking at double this price just to start, provided you already have all the other components.

This has been $350 at Micro Center [microcenter.com] since launch. I believe that's in-store only though.

It was even $300 at one point. Although not everyone has a local microcenter and best buy price match is 50-50.

I picked up a 12700k at launch and a DDR4 Z690, price wasn't too bad and performance has been great. One very big exception… you need Win11 with Thread Director to make the most of of your efficiency cores. Since I don't want to deal with games and TPM on Win 11, I'm staying with Win10 until at least Win11 SP1.

Without thread Director you'll get some glitches in games when some threads hit the efficiency cores. It's pretty annoying.

Workaround? Disable E-cores.

I think I'll just wait until DDR5 matures... everything should be cheaper and work better by then

Got one at $329 from microcenter when I travel to LA this new year. Works great and exceeds my actual needs

paid $229 for MSI z690 ddr4 wifi mobo and PayPal promo gave me $25 off. I like it pretty much and do not get why people complain it is much more expensive

For gaming, none. It even makes some games run better. For other multi-threaded tasks and overall system efficiency, you will be dropping performance.

What issues with games are there on Windows 11? Or, is this an issue with the efficiency cores and Win 11? I've been using 11 for months (AMD processor) and have had no issues with any program or game.
