I'm building a new system around an intel Intel - Extreme Series ATX Motherboard 1600MHz (Socket 2011)
Model: BOXDX79TO, Ivi Bridge 3770K, GTX 680 (With the ability to do SLI in the future) and Corsair - Gaming Series 700-Watt ATX CPU Power Supply Model: GS700.

My questions are. Will the MoBo intel BOXDX79TO supports the Ivy Bridge 3770k? And will the Corsair GS700 support SLI GTX 680 later on?

and sorry for the multiple threads.

Ivy bridge will be 1155, not 2011.

There is rumor that Ivy Bridge E (coming ~November) may be 2011 compatible... but I have my doubts as most high end chips end up getting their own dedicated socket.

Thanks for the quick reply. My main goal is to build a system that will take advantage of future techs. Will the X79 board be backward compatible is the Socket 1155? I also would like support for PCi-e 3.0.
