Upgrading to Kaby lake

Postby Euro_Bucks » Sun Jan 22, 2017 11:42 am

I'm looking forward to upgrade to this Kaby lake generation.
I currently own a system with a haswell 4570 in it.
Been looking through the line-up from different manufacturers and
I saw this interesting bundle from Biostar.

Image

A Z270 motherboard ( I think it's their high end one ) bundled with
a 256Gb Intel 600p m.2 SSD.

Sold at $328 for the bundle.The SSD alone costs $100 and the remaining
goes to the board.
I think it's a fair deal since I will be having their top of the line
Z270 and a free m.2 SSD.

Your suggestions will be highly considered.

Biostar are making reasonable boards. This time I am puzzled though, I cannot find any other LGA1151 board with 6 PCIexpress 3.0 slots. Only a 2011 board from Asus. So that alone makes this interesting.
First look article here:

which explains you save $23 by buying the bundle

thanks for the link. i might not need the 10gbe as of the moment but i guess that would be possible in the future.
also those colored stuff is pretty interesting. it would be my first.
