I bought a Crosshair V 990FX and for buying an equivalent priced board around here, I would need to buy a Gigabyte Z68XP-UD5, which isn't as good as an Asus Crosshair V. For the equivalent quality, I would need to buy a Asus Maximus Extreme-Z, which is the price and an half and a bit more of a Crosshair V. The price of the CHV is 205 â‚¬ and the Maximus is 345 â‚¬ around here.
So, it isn't a bit more than an AMD system and the FX8120 is just a bit worse than a 2500k for the same price. At the same time, since Intel is releasing the Haswell next year, it is probably coming a new socket, when I can keep my AM3+ socket.
I might add that with the difference in money, I could have bought almost a GTX560 or a Sabertooth 990FX.
