Hello. Just a little advice Please. I would like some imput
On a few questions that have popped up when researching
parts for a build. OK Here is a list of parts:

Gigabyte G.1 Sniper Z77 MB.
I7 3770K CPU.
G.SKILL Trident X 2x8GB RAM.
Cooler Master Silent Pro Gold 1000W PSU.

Ok Questions: I currently have 2 Gigabyte GTX 560's,
One in my AMD system and one Still in the box for later
SLI in new PC.
With the G.1 MB having 16x16 for SLI PCIE Gen.3.
What happens With the i7 3770K, due to limit of PCI
Express Configurations 1x16, 2x8, 1x8 & 2x4?? I know
about the PLX Chip info on lanes. But will this even matter
to Me?, having only Gen 2.0 PCIE GTX 560's. I basically
want to know what increase i will have when I put these
two 560's in SLI with the above combo..

My AMD System Specs:
Gigabyte GA-MA750SLI-DS4 - MB
Phenom II x4 960T - CPU
1 X GV-N56GOC-1GI - GPU
6GB RAM DDR2
120 GB SSD
2 x 500-GB HDD's
600 Watt - PSU
Windows 7

You're picking components far too expensive. You won't see a difference between that mobo and $140 PCIE3 8x/8x one.

I Should of mentioned its for a future purchase of GTX 680's.LGA1155 processors V's 2011. Intel can be a bit to get ya head round. Just want a change from AMD while they catch up with their cpu's Money is always an issue yes, but in this case Iam not bothered by the over priced items listed here. I just like what I see, but feel free anyone to list a great combo of parts for me to research. Its not set in stone yet this purchase. I Would greatly appreciate useful info.

You're still paying too much for the mobo, even GTX680s in 2-way SLI run great on a 8x/8x board.

Best solution

ASUS SABERTOOTH Z77, i5 3570K Would be a good priced combo for about $500 but save up another $200 or so for the G1 Sniper & i7 3770K,
