Sorry for posting in a closed thread but I didn't want to start a new one with a follow up question.
I went ahead and bought the i5 3570K. Before I decide where to install it, I have 2 motherboards MSI Z68A-GD65 (G3) with i5 2500K, and as in my original post MSI P67A-GD53 (B3). My Z68 is GEN3 so I DO have support for PCI 3.0. Would I benefit from Ivy or will these 2 CPUs perform the same regardless of which board they're on?
Just to clarify, I am not upgrading my CPU "just because" I needed a second CPU anyways and I have an HD 7950, so since I have the option between the 2 CPU's on my main rig, I just want to know if it's worth switching.
