Need help on CPU/Motherboard upgrade.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello Its its upgrade time for me. Since my current board can't handle the awesomeness that is crossfire 7870 because of crappy bandwidth its still to get new parts.

I was thinking of getting this
ASUS Maximus IV Gene-Z/GEN3
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131806R
And a
IVY I3
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116775


This setup is just a place holder until haswell or HOPEFULLY AMD drops something nice for the Matx users.

Any Ideas on the upgrades.
