  1. They will work, but pretty much everything on it is major overkill - especially if gaming is the top priority. Knowing the budget will help suggest a stronger system.
  2. My suggestion?

    Fill out the new build form in the new build section of the forum.

    That's a workstation platform, you could build a gaming system for a lot less money and it would be more efficient to.

    Your also going to need a quad channel memory kit for that.

    I am trying to build my self a computer that will last quite a long time and that I can use for the future. I plan to get into video game development and programming for video games but I am very new to building computers. I am trying to build a computer under $3000 and I want it to be strong and capable of almost anything. As of now I would use it for hosting servers, gaming and some small work. Thank you for your help!

  5. Both s2011 and s1155 will be gone by next year, so there's no such thing as lasting a long time as far as upgrading.

    A $350 mobo isn't going to do you any good over a $150 mobo as far as upgrading is concerned unless your planning on running 64gb of ram and 4 video cards.

    Supposedly IB-E is going to continue to use LGA 2011 but I don't know how reliable my sources are on that.
