I have 2 6850 crossfiredx to run along the 2500k, should I upgrade to 2500k....will I see a huge improvement over the phenom II X6?

I'm personally waiting for ivy bridge.Theres no point in buying a motherboard and chip that will be outdated in a two months.

You would see huge improvments in most games with a 2500k but your 1055t should still be giving you playble fps.

If you are itching to upgrade sell your 6850s and get a 7970 you would get an improvment over what you have and you'd be able to use it in a new build.

What will the new mobo offer over the Z68 Gen 3 boards?

To be honestly i'm not sure what advantages z77 boards will offer.

Aren't some of the IB Cpu's, for z68? All I keep hearing is z77 and socket 2011, etc.

So what IB CPU's are compatible with z68 boards?

My MB, 5 phases I think, enough to get a decent oc...?

well your kinda all over the place there, z77 is the cream of the crop IB chipset. all IB and SB cpus are backward comaptable with most respective chipsets, I.E you can run a sandy on a z77 and you can run an ivy on a z68 just for example. all IB CPU's are abckwards comaptible with z68 borads.. you might just need a bios update..

advatages of a z77 include native USB 3.0 so no extra controller is needed to run USB 3.0 like with SB platforms.. z77 will offer native 1600MHz RAM which means you dont have to do a techniaclly an OC to run 1600 MHz RAM on a z77.. z68s etc only natively support 1333 so anything over that is an OC of your RAM.. this leads me to believe on a z77 you can push your RAM out further and easier thumb.gif
