Need CPU/Motherboard/RAM/PSU advice Tags: CPUs Motherboards Last response: January 7, 2011 4:25 PM in CPUs Share e-nigma January 7, 2011 2:45:10 PM I just bought a superclocked GTX 570, and I guess it's about time to upgrade the rest of my outdated components. I'm sure many people have already done "the work" already, so I'd like some advice on a performance geared setup/OC-ing, without breaking the bank (I don't need the *most* expensive stuff) So, I need to upgrade CPU Motherboard (was leaning towards X58) RAM PSU I *might* go with an SLI setup, so I guess I should have a system that can handle it. Options? TIA!

The K at the end stands for unlocked e-nigma January 7, 2011 4:21:29 PM Ahh, how long do you estimate for more boards to come out? What's the designation for these motherboards?
