I need some one to tell me is there any difference between core i7 and 3rd gen core i7 when chosing a motherboard? This is my first time building a desktop so I'm just looking at components right now. The CPU I'm currently looking at is the

Intel Core i7-3770 Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.9GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 77W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4000 BX80637I73770

When I looked on newegg and filtered my search when I chose 3rd gen i7 as CPU I only had 3 to chose from and they 2 weren't meant for a gaming build and the last had a very low customer rating. Thanks to anyone who can help me.

I guess my budget is around 1500 right now I'm just doing research on components before really spending. I know I want to get one that SLI supported

I highly recommend the Sabertooth Z77 board, very good for overclocking and has SLI/Crossfire support as well as a ton of other features!
