Hey, so I'm pretty new to the whole computer building thing, and i was just wondering (totally nooby question like, but I can't seem to find a straight answer on the internet anywhere), but what compatibility issues would there be with a 2nd Gen mobo and a 3rd gen CPU (Asus P8H61-MX and Intel i3 3320 IvyBridge 3.30GHz).

Thanks in advance,

It should work fine, minus PCI-E 3.0 and any other 3rd Gen specific features. But they should work perfectly fine together.
