CPU Upgrade Question
Apr 26, 2012, 7:24 PM
I have bought quite a few pieces to my new system below are the pieces
Case: Corsair 600t White Edition:
PSU: Corsair HX 750:
RAM: Corsair Vengeance LowPro 8GB:
Aftermarket HSF: Spire Thermax Eclipse II:
The three things I haven't bought so far are the motherboard, CPU, and video card.
Here are the ones I am thinking about getting:
Motherboard: ASUS Sabertooth Z77:
Video Card: Radeon HD 7870:
I would like to get a new Ivy Bridge CPU, but am at a cross for which model.
This computer will be mostly used for running virtual machines and gaming. Let's see some opinions ^.^

Core i5 3570K
Sabertooth Z77 is a good board but I'm not sold on that Armor concept.
