I am willing to spend a couple bucks more between the following motherboards:

is the extra money worth it?

i5 2500k

8gb 1600

gtx 550 ti (Will PCI 3.0 Slots work with the GTX 550 ti?)

Thanks :D

Def Z68. your z68 e3 g3 board has pcie2/3.0 compatibility, so any card will work. That board is also a great board for Overclocking, and packed with features. One of my fave boards ever :D

any card will work on a pci-e 2.0 slot as well.

question really is, do you care about quicksync? it lets you transcode videos CONSIDERABLY faster than any other alternative. if u do care, get the z68

yeah it should work fine, though i have heard some compatibility issues with 3.0.

if you are planning on transcoding, then get the z68 so you can use quicksync
