    This motherboard gives you the ability to run the CPU at turbo speeds full time, it is also very cheap and does everything a single card Gamer could want.

  3. Best answer
    The i5-3350P is LGA 1155 and won't work with a Z87 board.

    Get something like this instead
    Board: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157297
    Card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121637

    Total $340 after rebate.

    Everything in that chart outperforms the 650 Ti Boost.
