I changed the cpu to an Ivy Bridge and the reason for that is you had selected a Z77 chipset motherboard which has Pci-e 3.0 and the video card also has Pci-e 3.0 so with the Ivy Bridge that supports the Pci-e 3.0 you now have the three parts necessary for the Pci-e 3.0 to function , plus by selecting the 3550 you get a free upgrade to the 3570.
