this is good value I would wait to see what the i5 7500k would bring us granted it willl probably be $100 over this setup you suggest.
Benchmarks on i7 7700k looks amazing keeping up with hexacore of current generations is amazing feat for a quad core chip.

Any comments on this motherboard? Would it be better to wait until black friday?

Not seeing the Intel 4690 for $180.

$208 is the lowest price for me.

Is the Intel i5-4690 better than an i5-6600??? i5-6600 seems to be the highly recommended CPU Sweet spot for anyone who wants to do a little gaming too.

Looks like a good deal. Hard to find boards for an 1150 socket with an M.2 port in this price range. Although NewEgg has had an Asrock board in this range recently.
Who makes the better board? Thoughts?

Same... looks like Amazon raised the price on the CPU.

ASUS, MSI, ASRock are my go to, in that order; haven't been much of a fan of Gigabyte or EVGA. ASRock is a subsidiary of ASUS, if that means anything to you.

just installed two boxes, a i5-6600K and i7-6700K, amazingly NO noticeable performance gain comparing to my old i7-2600 installed 4 years ago.

All 3 PCs are using SSD as OS partition.

After all the money spent, I simply don't find the thrill with new hardware like used to enjoy 10 years ago. I felt like I just wasted money on something I didn't have to.

Is there really any point to upgrade CPU/Mb/Ram any more?

Unless you are gaming at 4k the difference is negligible. There are benchmarks out there where they used a gtx 1080 with an i5 2500k vs i7 6700k and the difference was next to nothing.

Isn't it mostly power savings now?

Price went up to $85 AR. Got distracted earlier today, and now the deal is dead.

Does anyone happen to have a screenshot (with time) of the price at $99? I purchased this a few weeks ago at $130 and wanted to use price protection to get the difference back.
