    I think, upgrading the processor to a quad-core IVB sounds better.

    If the Z68MB supports it, you're right. 3570K if overclocking or not, getting a K version will have much more resale later.

    According to his System Specs, he's already using a Core i3-3220 on a Z68 motherboard.

    Z77X-UP7 is balls-to-the-wall overclocking board.

    G1.Sniper3 is a gaming board, and will not clock as well. The G1.Sniper3 has better gaming audio chip.

    If no OC, then take the G1.SniperM3.

    If going to OC, with one or two VGA, then UD3H or UD5H is a maybe better choice.

    If I were to chose out of the 2 it would be the Z77X-UP7, but with your current setup, it is VERY overkill, unless you plan to get a 3570k or 3770k and clock the dog snot out of it.

    My question is why do you want a new board. Whats wrong with what you currently have. You will gain more performance with buying a 3570k or 3770k CPU in the end.

    I've loved the UP7 since I first laid eyes on it. One of my dream boards.

    okay, well I don't think you need to spend $400 on a board to run 2 or 3 videos in SLI or Cross fire. But thats just me. Seems like a waste.

    You could get like a $200-250 board to allow multi card configurations then take the $100+ you dont use towards a UP7 towards a nice SSD or something.

    Even if you are only going CrossfireX, getting a GD65 or UD3H will save even more which can go into a better CPU or quieter performance cooling.
    3 way configurations are only (really) good for benching OP (then which you would be getting a 3770K anyway).
