Meh :P I'm more of a sabertooth fan, though I do like the new lines in this, also the z97 deluxe looks nifty

Really nice board, has what it needs and a pretty nice price tag.

I really don't see the point in getting a motherboard for 1150 that costs over 200 quid, you might as well get the X79/X99 boards of the same price tag and get a lot more upgradeability.

Or if your already on Z87 according to Anandtech it's really not worth switching over, It will be like switching from a 3770K to a 4770K but a tad less according to some people I've been talking to.

I was talking from the perspective of an upgrade from pre-SB hardware. If you can afford a 4770k and some 250 quid board, you might as well get a 4820k and a 200-250 quid X79 board, although at this point it is worth considering the wait for X99...
