Going Intel

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Ok guys so I want to move from AMD to Intel. My current setup is:
AMD Phenom II x6 1090T and Gigabyte GA-890FXA-UD5 Rev 2.1 M/B, check sig rig for all details.

Basically I want to move to an Intel i7.
I was thinking about using a Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD7-B3 Motherboard and a 2600k but what do you guys think?

I want your recommendations with conditions being:
  • Must support Xfire as I have 2x HD6950's flashed to 6970 bios (prefer x16/x16, not x16/x8 or anything)
Thanks in advance.
