    Hi, I was wondering what you guys think of the i7-4790k? I was going back and forth in head about getting the 4770k or 4820k then I heard about the 4790k about to come out. Is there any other CPU model to be released soon that’s worth the wait or should I just go with the 4790k.
    P.S. What do u guys think is the best (Asus) MOBO/Chipset to go with it?

    What is the system being used for? That will help determining whether to go x79/4820k or z97/4790k.
