    Asus ROG Impact with i3?

    Good evening ladies and gentlemen. I am in a dilemma. Because of a not so big of a budget i am between the ASUS ROG IMPACT with an i3 4130 or the ASUS H87I-PLUS with an i5 4430? I choose these motherboards because i found them in an open box condition so they are rather cheap. Your help will be greatfull because i must order them as soon as possible. Thank you in advance.

    Go for the i5 plus the MoBo unless you are rather set for the luxury ROG with the quality and OC potential and connectivity.

    Re: Asus ROG Impact with i3?

    Thanx Bonebreaker777 and sorry for the very late response. Had some problems at work. Propably i won't go with either of them. Financial matters. One question if you can help. My currently rig is an Asus P45Q 775lga with the Q8600 @2.6Ghz and 4Gb of Kingston ddr2. Lets say that i want to upgrade them with the lower cost.What would you do in either atx and minitx? Thanx in advance! BTW: i need PCI express 3.0 due to GTX650 and sata3 because of an OCZ 128Gb.

    If financial troubles, I would go with whatever is cheaper - or don't upgrade now, till my situation os stabilized.

    PCIe 3.0 is not that earth shattering performance wise and so is the SATA 3 for an 128GB OCZ (depends what model).

    ATX is typically lower in costs. ..

    Re: Asus ROG Impact with i3?

    Sure Atx is much more cheaper but i am stuck with a coolermaster elite 130 and i dont want to sell it because i use as a monitor my tv screen and i have my pc at my living room (i hide my case behind the tv). So my elite would be perfect for the living room. The thing is that regardless of the "financial matters" i have a deadline until the end of this month to decide what to buy. After that it would be autumn. But you say that i won't see any difference with the pci express 2.0?Neither with the sata 3? I think its the agility 3 my ssd. I am not sure right now.

    Re: Asus ROG Impact with i3?

    UThe differences between PCIe 2.0 and 3.0 would be insignificant from your point of view and even more because of your choosen GPU.

    As SATA 3Gb and SATA 6Gb goes, very few of the previous generation SSD could take advantage of the higher bandwidth and frok real-world-application-point-of-view the difference should be again insignificant.

    And looks like you choosen your MoBo already.

    EDIT: the SATA 3Gb and PCIe 2.0 questions were aimed concerning your current setup?

    Not my current setup. I was asking because if i am to buy a new mobo and the difference between sata2 to sata 3 and pci exprs 2 to 3 are zero, then i would buy a much more cheaper and more "plain" mb like the ASRock H61MV-ITX LGA 1155. I think with an i3 and 8 Gb ram would be nice cheap chooise. The question is if i would see difference with my current setup.
