wait if your getting a 7970 and its PCI-E 3.0, the cpu your getting only supports 2.0 like all the other sandy bridges. So what i recommend is to get a cheap i3 until ivy bridge comes out in april. Then buy an i5 3550K or i7 3770K if your planning to overclock
Heres a list, (all the one that have 'K' at the end is overclockable)
