More about upgrading system review please
  1. A few things u should know about SATA/USB 3.0 tech and mobos as shown by our very own forums here
    USB 3.0, SATA 6Gb/s, Motherboards, And Overcoming Bottlenecks

    Also note that LGA 1156 shall be usurped by LGA 1155 as soon as end of this year/possible Q1 next year if u intending to sink a wee bit on chip + board FYI...

  2. I should have posted a link to this stuff also,

    mb - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130258

    the sli/crossfire runs x16/ x16/ x0 or x16/x8/x8

    it actually doesn't seem to have sata 6 or usb 3
