Common now you know we can't do pricing on the forums =P
You're right, Intel has the tray prices for both processors at $383. Well that's not very nice...
Yes but you are looking at the pricing in a vacuum, it may be +80 from the 4700, but who said the 4700 price + $80 was even equal to $383
Just because something is comparatively more expensive doesn't mean its still not cheaper.
To further the example, if someone else was "charging" on their site: (Note all numbers are examples, and not reflective of the real world, disclaimer disclaimer)
4700 - $383
4702 - $383
They would be the "same price" and have the "same cost"
But if someone else was say
4700 - $250
4702 - $330
Who's the better deal
that's a mighty massive router price for my pockets
-there are other well-regarded options on amazon's best seller list that come much cheaper, but i don't know if there's much of a sacrifice in output/connectivity.
Amazon Best Sellers: best Computer Routers for instance
-second, is it a certainity that i'll i have to use the w8 operating system if i purchase the 7260? and furthermore, would my purchase of the 7260 still be justified if i didn't buy the router you suggested?
7260 will be better than the stock Broadcom or Realtek or whatever crap they give you on a BGN card. For $30 you will get a solid consistent connection. Otherwise BGN is BGN. If you want ultimate speed, then AC is the way to go. You're looking at 10MB/sec BEST with N and so far getting about 40-45MB/sec with AC. So I guess the question is if the cost is justified for you.
thanks for that.
i'll definitely have to read up more on what i'm getting myself into.
if anyone knows of any budget'ish ac routers out there, please send em my way.
This is from Aftershock:
It seems to me that it's not that thick.
Problem with AC though is that it's not a final standard, the way N wasn't for the longest time. So you may be limited in expansion in the future.
ugly lid and damn it looks THICK!
That is the exact reason I haven't bought an AC router just yet. Want to get a standardized standard before I decide on the router I'll be replacing my BGN with. Been resisting upgrading to a WRT for almost a year now because I knew these were coming.
