Final Thoughts

 

Over at Newegg, the ASUS P8Z77-V Deluxe is only cheaper to the P8Z77 WS board with both boards carrying a price tag of $274.99 and $339.99 respectively. At launch, this is simply put one of the most expensive offerings on the market. Saying that, it comes as little shock to us, outside of the Workstation offering, we'd only expect a ROG based ATX board to cost more.

 

It's easy to justify the associated cost, though, with a strong bundle, an excellent feature set, great build quality and an overall look that is pretty impressive. The P8Z77-V Deluxe is everything you'd expect it to be considering it carries that "Deluxe" tag at the end of its model name.

 

Like probably most Intel Z77 Express based boards on the market, we are not sure if it is worth running out and grabbing a Z77 board to upgrade from your current Z68 offering. On the other hand, if you're taking the leap now to the LGA 1155 platform, you'd be crazy to not choose a Z77 board over an older Z68 board.

 

ASUS manage to tick most the boxes with the P8Z77-V Deluxe, but you can't help but feel the price may be a bit too much for some. Fortunately the P8Z77-V Deluxe isn't just one of many boards, but one of many ASUS boards we've got here. So, if you're looking for something a bit cheaper, we more than likely will have something for you later on in other ASUS Z77 reviews.

 

If you're a user of the Deluxe series in the past or any of ASUS high-end boards, you'll understand what you're buying and with that kind of quality an increased price tag comes with it. If you're happy to spend more, this is a great option. If you want to save a bit of money, keep an eye out over the coming weeks as we test the stockpile of Z77 boards here.
