Long story short I've just build a rig and went with 2700k. Since it gives less heat and I like overclocking I thought this would be a good path.
What I failed on my research is that 2700k DOES NOT support PCIE 3. Currently have EVGA GTX 670 which runs according to GPUZ on 2.0. My buy is still within 30 days so I could probably swap cpu to 3770k. Difference in price is $40(microcenter). But then I have to remove heatsink etc... lot of work.. (so mad)
Guys, do you think I will gain visible performance(not interested in synthetic benchmarks) if I would swap 2770k for 3770k so my GPU will work on PCIE3?
Any thoughts on this? or just wait for new cpu edition and swap it later. Please let me know.
