OK I have an ECS H61H2-M12 (V1.0)

I know it have a crappy chipset. I think its the lowest chipset intel got for the LGA 1150

But here my question I am gonna upgrade from Pentium g620 to Core i7 3770 non-k
Will it handle the i7 fine with no lag or shit because of the shitty chipset

OR

I will just buy the 990FX mobo from Gigabyte and a FX-8320 ?

EDIT :

AMD is just my second option, cause this processor runs shit on single threaded games and apps

More about : hard truth mobo

That is socket 1155, not 1150. Nonetheless, it is bad, man:p 

The bright side: The chipset doesn't affect processing power, but it effects things like overclocking ability, SATA, USB, etc.

It will handle the i7 fine though :)

Motherboard: 95 Watt processor max power, 5 phase power design, only 2 fan headers
Chipset: pcie Gen 2 only, only 4 SATA 3.0 ports (people usually only use one or two anyway)

While I'm not a fan of ECS, it's typical for a H61 mobo, the 'negatives' listed aren't negatives i.e. 95 watt max - for 1155 that is max, so nothing wrong, PCI-E is gen 2 - again typical, same on SATA ports, so they are negatives, they are just typical of a H61 - should be fine

Not at all! The 3770 will blast it! Plus, AMD 990FX only has pcie 2.0 anyway and it is 'new' :p 

I meant negatives compared to a top end chipset. Plus the power stuff is just for overclocking, which he won't be doing.

But two fan headers though:p
