Last year, I built a HTPC for my theater room, making an effort to stick to components with low power-consumption, since it was basically just a glorified media player. I have an i3-2100 Sandy Bridge CPU and the ASUS P8H67-M EVO motherboard.
Lately, I've upgraded the video card to an HD 7870, because I've started playing PC games a lot more. Now I'm thinking about just throwing in the towel and using it primarily for gaming. I'll move the OS and games to an SSD and leave the other hard drives for media storage. But I figured I should also upgrade the CPU, and the i5-3570K seems highly recommended.
So, my question is... do I need to upgrade the motherboard too? It seems that most would recommend a Z77 motherboard, but I'm trying to keep costs down where possible. The Asus I have now is an H67, but it's the same socket type that the i5-3570K requires, so I know it'll fit.
I have absolutely no intention of overclocking, but even still... am I hamstringing myself by sticking with that motherboard?
