I've got some money burning a hole in my pocket. I was thinking if it would actually be worth it for me to up grade my current board which only does PCIe *16/*4 for a board capable of doing *8/*8. Also, I would be gaining UEFI bios in this upgrade. Only reason I picked this board was because it was a combo deal for it and the 2600k for $340. I am running a pair of 5870's in crossfireX. I don't know how long I'll be running them, but they are doing just fine for now. I may upgrade to IB in the future, but that will be a long time from now as this 2600k is more than enough for me. The board I'm considering is the ASRock Z68 EXTREME4 GEN3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI S.... I realise I don't really need this upgrade, but new toys are always nice.
