Upgrading PC - Question about MOBO Tags: Graphics Cards Motherboards Components Last response: February 14, 2012 6:04 PM in Components Share redcoat_10 February 14, 2012 5:29:39 PM Hello, I'm going to update my PC very soon because my motherboard wont POST anymore. I want to buy new hardware but Im scared I will buy something only to figure out its not good enough to game with. I'm keeping my Video Card (580), DVD burner and thats it. Im looking at these two mother boards:http://ncix.com/products/?sku=61183&vpn=P8Z68-V%20PRO&m... http://ncix.com/products/?sku=61002&vpn=GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3... I play newer games like BF3 and Sky Rim, and I want to continue to do so. Will either of these mother boards be good enough to plugg GTX 580 video card into and play? I know this isnt the CPU forum but Would a Intel Core i7 2600K Quad Core be a good enough CPU? Also, is i7 better then i5?
