  1. Socket LGA 1156 has no boards with PCIe ver 3.0 and there is no notice able performance difference. It is the wrong reason for upgrade http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Intel/Ivy_Bridge_PCI-Express_Scaling/23.html The high end cards loose 1% on PCIe ver 2.0.
  2. I see ,thnx for quick respond , so my best option would be change CPU and board , afterall . What would be best option to increase performance of my system ? or deffinatly need new CPU ?
  3. Cheapest is buy an aftermarket cooler and overclock. Upgrade to lga 1150 Haswell platform would cost considerable more money.
  4. I see .
    Well i would upgrade in 600$ for CPU and board
    i dont wont to overwhelm in question , but still , what can you suggest for this price range
    ?

    Great combo. H55 is little small but similar performance as budget air cooler you could overclock on it. If you are only gaming the I5 4670K would be sufficient since in gaming it is really close to the I7 which shines in rendering and editing.
  6. I see, i guess ill go with full cpu and board upgrade . Thnx for help rolli59 !!!
  7. You are welcome.
