Hi, I got a 2600K a while back on an impulse from a friend...
...they have a bachelors degree related to computers.
I guess that's why they're making everything in China these days. Maybe their degrees actually mean something?
But more importantly, what are you doing with a 600 dollar board?
EDIT: On a serious note though, if you wanna upgrade, get a $100 Z68 board after selling off your old board+CPU and everything from your previous build should fall in place in 99% of the cases.
Depending on what processor you're using, you can actually make some money
from the upgrade
