  1. Best advice is to wait until next month with Ivy Bridge coming out and the full line up of Z77 motherboards. I would look at a i5 3570K to go with that.

    On current availability I would say a ASUS P8Z68 V Pro Gen3 or a MSI Z68A GD80 with a i5 2500K

    On the AMD front, if you accept the lesser per core performance and weaker IMC then the FX 8120 on a ASUS Crosshair V Formula is a consideration.
  2. Yea don't ever change from Intel, i will be getting ivy eventually..... first i have to get a NVIDIA Kepler card.... then i get ivy!....

    I +1 to Sarinaide's comment
  3. so avoid I7 920 chip.i havea asus p6t7 deluxe with 6 gig ram 920 intel i7 and 4870 x2 card express pci 2 gig ram on board
  4. The i7 920 is getting on now, a better upgrade will to be to look at a 950/960 or better but the old i7's have reached the end. Performance wise the cannot mach sandy or ivy and in most instances match the lower priced Phenom II x 6 Thubans in performance.
  5. so we wait for ivy
