And? If you look ages later, there is always a chance that the price went up.

Apologies some of us work
What was the price for your rig once you'd purchased all the bits please?
It's a good board, I picked one up a few weeks ago from Scan for £162. They appear to have been replaced by the Ultra Gaming Pro which also has WiFi, so these are getting cleared out at 45%+ off.

I blame HUKD ... there was a cheap DDR4 3200 kit a few weeks ago, so bought that and was keeping an eye out for a cheap 7740X both here and on eBay. Got one of those, then found this board. £950 worth of bits for less than half price in total.

Honestly, even if the board had wireless built in, I would still hard wire an Ethernet cable.

Absolutely. I live in a apartment block, so there's 20+ WiFi networks visible. It's fine for browsing the web, but the gaming machine needs a guaranteed low latency so gets wired in. When I'm racing an online against 50 other people with someone the other side of the planet being 3 inches behind me on track the last thing I need is a lag spike due to the neighbours firing up the microwave or the router channel hopping...
