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

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..
