    Well ..... I think this reviewer said it best....

    I don’t think there’s any compelling reason to move from an Ivy Bridge or even a Sandy Bridge based system to a Haswell system– there simply isn’t enough performance and feature differential to justify it. On the other hand, if you’re building a new rig from scratch, there’s little point in investing in end-of-life platforms, so going Haswell/Z87 makes sense.


    Just $352 for a current generation gaming oriented performance MoBo / CPU combo (MSI Z87 G45 / 4570k)

    the SSD investment could be better spent elsewhere as it has little impact on gaming.....the GFX card which has great impact on gaming is a 2 generations old low to mid level card. I just found it for sale for $182 and for that price you could have a 2GB GTX 650 Ti Boost.

    Id suggest dropping to a 128 GB SSD and a MSI N760

    Fill this out and you are overpaying on a lot of parts. If it is gaming you want to spend most of your money on the GPU

    Thanks for your answer.

    All those hardware items above, is allready installed.

    So, next time buying a new mobo - it may be the Z87.

    But otherwise, i just need new gfx card - then im good going? :)
    The reviews for the MSI N760 are good.. :) Might go for that one then..
