    What do little Pc components dream of being when they grow up?

    Asus X99 Deluxe.

    Just a shame the platform as a whole rips such deep holes in bank accounts, so I'll be patiently waiting for Broadwell or even Skylake.

    I'm 100% with you :D. Number of cores appart, the main difference between 1150 i7 and 2011-3 are the maximum number of PCIe lanes available (only with high end 2011-3 CPU). Not really worth it and still won't beat an LGA1150 ITX farm.

    Yes the new X99 stuff, which is packed with features, is on the costly side. Mind you, new tech tends to come at a premium. Can only hope prices drop.

    I agree with you. And if someone wants to go down the multi GPU route at cost, would be better with a 4820K/4930K and X79.
