What mobo to cater for future CPUs, e.g ivy bridge, sandy-e or amd

Hey, new to the forum
I'm currently researching my next build of gaming computer, an basically want to know if I buy a mobo now, will by work with the next generation chips?
For example, will a z68 mobo or similar most likely fit the ivy bridge chips when they arrive?
Or if I went the amd track, will am3+ or fm2 be a better investment?

  1. http://www.asrock.com/mb/overview.asp?Model=Z68%20Extreme3%20Gen3 that is one confirmed motherboard for ivy bridge support. there are a few others if you look around. For AMD AM3+ is a better investment, FM2 is a joke
  2. That's a fairly reasonable price also. Can you recommend any other models?
    Or what's the easiest way for me to find mobos that will support ivy or sandy e?
    Is sandy bridge e going to be on the same socket or a different one?
  3. sandy bridge e is same socket. Ivy bridge will be released with a new socket, but they will release chips for both 1555 and the new socket. Rumors are that most z68 boards with compatable 64Mb UEFI should be a firmware flash away from Ivy bridge support, but i dont think it has been 100% confirmed.
