Will this motherboard suit my 2500k needs?

Hey all,
I currently have a amd setup with a gigabyte 990fxa-ud7 board and 1100t @4ghz
I am thinking of shelving the board and waiting for piledriver and in the mean time getting
a 2500k with a half decent motherboard that will take me to around 4-4.2ghz

I have a xfx 750pro core edition psu and zalman cnps11x extreme cpu cooler.

Will that motherboard be sufficient for my needs?

I am only really switching to get a boost
in fps for 3d needs, then when piledriver comes out, I will either upgrade to that using my
990fxa board, or if it still cant compete with intel in any way then I will switch to an i7 or
better processor, depending on what I can get for the money at the time.
Only really interested because there are deals on with the 2500k and that board
Thanks for your help.

Buy Z68 mobo. It have PCIE 3.0 and if in the future you change the CPU with Ivy Bridge you will benefit from the full speed of PCIE 3.0.

That's great thank you :D  I just wish I knew if piledriver would outshine the 2500k
because then I would just stay where I am if so.
But at least its a cheap option for performance boost
