Get this one instead. Great mobo with great OC capability due to its power design.

For the 2700K u don't need Z77, Z68 is just fine.

ASUS P8Z68-V/GEN3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

PCIE3.0, BT GO!,USB3.0 Boost, Intel LAN support

was: $179.99 ->$174.99 ->$154.99 after mail-in rebate card + FREE SHIPPING

There is no sense to upgrade to IB from SB.

For 15% extra power?

Maybe Haswell is the answer, but even that would give u maybe some 30% extra.

Unless u do games only, even 2500K would do fine for u.

And u can use IB with this mobo too, all u have to do upgrade your BIOS, that's all.
