None of those comes close. None of them has 4 PCIexpress x16 slots. Is there a special reason you want to order with these people? Or would a different supplier for the P8Z77V Premium solve your problem too?

honestly, i would not do any "buy now pay later".

in one year the components will be worth half the price but you will still struggle to pay the full price.

In one year many things can happen that will make it difficult to pay it then. better get a system that you can afford...

there are many reasonable price motherboards out there that cost only a few bugs and still have great quality. get a entry level board from msi or asus or get a better one from biostar for the same price. That would be a wise decision instead of paying later.

A "buy now, pay later" deal always looks good.. at first glance. But unless you read the details of the deal, you could be adding up to 24.99% more than the actual price in interest charges! If interest is deferred until payment time, it may be a decent deal. But put aside the equivalent payments as escrow until needed. Also check for any "prepayment" penalties! Use a Pay Pal account or internationally accepted credit/debit card to make purchases. Any interest amount above 17% is considered high, for any extended payment plans.

Asus motherboards are not the only offerings.. there are other brands, as good, better or worse. Always do a compare before purchase.
Any motherboard that is discontinued may have had issues.. and was probably replaced with a newer design. Or the provider could no longer realize profit in the market.

i think thats not true. technology is progressing fast. why should a manufacturer continue a board that is already outdated? so it is wise to start new series and versions based on the current level of standard and knowledge.

for example, people complain that biostar puts many versions of their motherboards out, but i think that is the most honest thing they can do. Other manufacturers are doing the same but they do it below the table without any notice. thats the difference.

Almost no motherboard is running perfectly right from the start. many bugs can be fixed through bios updates. Those that cannot require new versions.
