Great, that puts me at ease then! Thanks so much for the replies. And sorry for my ignorant lack of research but one more question..
Say I choose the z77 board and 3 years later decide to upgrade. With whatever cpu Intel came out with by then, would the z77 chipset be able to support it? Whereas with the P67, I'd have to swap the entire MB for a new cpu/gpu, right?
That's all I need to know, best answer to whoever! Thanks a lot for your time
