Why would you need an 1155 for a FX?

I'm using a AsRock z77 Extreem4 and love it. I researched it, and for the money and features, it's awesome!

gigabyte Z77X-UD3H - Asus P8Z77-V - Asrock Z77 Extreme6
these are the best mobo's out with high overclocking capability and personally i would choose the UD3H have all the features with gigabyte great 3D bios and also with nice price.

I would go with the 3570K. Make sure to get a cooler as well.

Why would you upgrade a FX8120?

it bottlenecks my 670 for some reason(only at least mostly in bf3 on big maps but lots of people have the same issue, oh and to prove its not the gpu that gets me "low" fps i disable aa and i go up 4fps so explain that :D )

anyways i forgot the mention it needs to be able to support a network card that goes into pci slot(or if i can get another if you know of any that work in pci-e)

thanks for the suggestions ill look at them

hmm one last thing I do edit videos so should i still go with the 3570k?
