Re: my beef about budget haswell motherboards
I ended up getting a haswell xeon cpu instead of the 4770. I already have the motherboard at home. I ordered a e3 1245 v3 xeon 3.4 ghz (4770 eqivalent that is compatible with my mb and $20 cheaper) from newegg canada. Shipping from Mississuaga,Ontario (40 mins from home) so it will be here monday. Good thing I did my research because I would have went over budget with the 4770 for a 4 core,8 thread haswell cpu.
