Hello,

I will possibly be getting the below build and I am interested in putting the new GTX680 into it sometime soon. I play about 15hrs of games a week, plus I do some video rendering, etc. and I want to know if my system will be able to integrate the new GPU well. I am a total noob so bear with!

I am also curious about the anticipated Ivy Bridge CPUs...Will those be backwards compatible with my mobo?
