The LGA 1155 socket is already dead. I don't think that it is a good choice to spend more on a dead socket when you already have a very good processor. For gaming the i5 and i7 are like exactly the same. The difference is just 5-10 FPS, that too on very high end graphics cards. The difference should be close to none in a 7950.

Hence I would recommend you to stick with the i5 3470. It is a pretty good CPU.

Anyways are you planning to crossfire in the future?

Get this board. It is a full sized ATX board with Crossfire and SLI support and other features. This should be pretty good for you.

And also stick with the i5. For gaming there is no difference between the two CPU's

I already have ASRock B75M R2.0, she is pretty small and i dont have place for nothing, my huge VaporX cooler cover almost all PCI slots, so i want new, better ATX motherboard, then i would like to sell this one and buy new one, i can get some cheaper MB like H77, but on H77 i cant overclock so i concluded it is better to buy Z77 motherboard, in Croatia we don't have that ZH MB, look this is my shop http://www.futura-it.hr/katalog/komponente/maticne-ploc... so you can see offer i ve got, and tell me which one is better for me in 500-750kn(kn is croatian money) price is located on right side, you will see and can you just tell me which one is best between those 3.
