i have recently run into a problem with my motherboard and processor combo not being strong enough for my new gtx 760, how would this motherboard and CPU combo look in comparison to its price.

if you have a microcenter near you, they have some great cpu/mobo combos at really good prices. If not, try pcpartspicker and look over parts combos they recommend (or try newegg, they have some decent cpu/mobo combos at times)

fair enough, i just need to know if this is a good combo. ( i know the processor is good, my brother uses it and it has not failed him ever. i just a verification of the motherboard)

the motherboard you selected should be fine......you are aware you may need to get a new OS since you are upgrading your cpu/mobo, your original OS license is tied to the original mobo, and in most instances any mobo upgrade requires a new license.

Before you head off, teh CPU may well be fine, what's your PSU, and what problems are you having?

My bad, misread that you HAVE a 3570, sorry, the 3570 would be great, it wouldn't even bottleneck a 780, so it's be a good choice.

thanks, that helps a lot actually. how does the motherboard look though, that's the only thing i'm suspicious about. does it have a good overall look to it (by look i meen running speed, etc)
