Re: Z97-ws

My brother-in-law is traveling in Asia. Told him to keep an eye out for the ASUS Z97-WS. He found a few in either Shanghai or Bangkok. He knows PC's.

With the strong dollar it's going to cost me about $275 for the WS. Very easy for me to sell the Pro I have. Both the Pro and WS sell for twice their original amount new on Amazon even when available. I am ahead, at least in my mind anyway.

Plan to either do a quickie mobo swap and no refresh of the OS. Or be patient and wait for the 960 to be released and stabilized, and then do a fresh OS install on the 960.
