your better off spending 20.00 for a better board that has better parts like this one.http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130647&name=Intel-Motherboards
the z77 chipset will let you overclock any k chips. so in a year or two you can drop in a cheap ib 4 core cpu in a z77 mb and have a better gaming rig. i have that mb and same cpu combo with a nvidia 650 card as a server system. it was drop the cpu in and the board fired right up with no issues.
