Hey everyone. I'm new to the forum. I'm hoping to be able to upgrade an old intel mobo and i5 750 cpu. I'd love to stay under 500 bucks, but want something that will last a while. What I'd like is:

Intel i5-i7 (latest gen) 3ghz or higher (quad)
mobo that handles PCI express 3.0 and has up to 32gb RAM capacity
some overclocking ability

I have a nice MSI GTX 760 to go with it.

I've look online and found some decent deals but I come to this forum a lot and I know people here are very knowledgeable and helpful.

Thanks a ton in advance,
