Hello all. I am considering upgrading my motherboard and my processor. I am a gamer and I look to maximize as much as possible with my budget. I really don't want to spend more than $350. I am set on intel processors and Asus or Gigabyte boards. I currently run with a Q8400 and a GTX 560ti (which I plan on SLI'ing at a later point). I just purchased a XION AXP-700K14XE 700W ATX SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80+ Bronze Modular Power Supply ( so I don't think power will be an issue.

I was looking to upgrade my mobo to:

and my processor to:

I was really wondering how much of a performance difference I would get overall and in BF3 with just the one gtx560ti

How will this translate for gaming. Will I see a much better performance in BF3 with the 3570k over the q8400 with a GTX 560?
