I recently upgraded my PC chassis into a Coolermaster Storm Strkyer, now my motherboard looks so small compared to my Chasis. :p  Not to mention that my current mobo does not support USB 3.0 (which is the usb port in the front of my case) Now I can only use the rear ports :??: 

Anyway, I am planning on upgrading a new video card as well this coming December, I am looking on getting either a Palit GTX 650 Ti SSC or a Powercolor 7850. I was just wondering if I should upgrade my current ASUS P8H61-M LE mobo into a P67 or z77 mobo?

By the way here are my system specs:
Intel core i3-2100
2x2gb G.Skill Ripjaws X (will also be upgrading this to 2x4gb)
FSP Epsilon 600w 80+
Cooler Master Storm Stryker
ASUS P8H61-M LE
Video Card: GTS 250 Green Edition (but will be upgrading as I mentioned earlier)

So, should I upgrade my motherboard?

No. Your old board will work fine.

Wow.. Great to hear that.. Thanks! :) 

One last question though, assuming I do upgrade, what would you suggest?

Just the video card. List your favorite games for better advice. I'm not a gamer.
