I have been thinking about upgrading my CPU and motherboard.
I currently have a Z87-G45
motherboard, with i7-4790k
How important is spending money on a motherboard? I have noticed they often come in different "versions", some of which are several times more expensive than the more basic editions. Do the more expensive ones offer some important features?
Also, it is a bad time to upgrade a CPU? With the recent Ryzen release, is there a competing product from Intel coming?
