the case and boards are compatable. you can wait for ivy bridge i3s to come and then you can drop it in the system and get going. sandy bridge i3s work but ivy bridge i3s are a bit faster and more energy efficent
yeah i think ill wait for ivy because i need to work approximately 30 hours for my job, (I'm 13 i get payed 25/ho) and i don't really have a schedule for it, so ill definitely go for it. thank you for your help!
