That board has a pretty nifty feature where you can disable PCI-E 3.0 lanes to get more bandwidth.
For example, you can run a 16x/16x SLI/Crossfire on that board - a feature previously exclusive to the Intel 2011 socket.

NF200 example:
ASUS P8P67 WS Rev B3 (NF200)

and there are a few more LGA 1155 boards able to run x16/x16.

I was just mentioning one motherboard that I knew about that had the feature. I know there are others, but the Z87 XPower was the one that I first saw and read about - hence the recommendation. Also, Haswell is rumored to run cooler than Ivy(mine idles 33-35C meh).
If OP is building a new rig, I don't see a reason not to go Haswell, since you're starting a build from scratch - it may as well be next gen.
I personally don't see a reason to upgrade for people that currently have a Sandy/Ivy chip, but I'd encourage those putting together a new system to go with the latest components.

Pulled the trigger:

i7 4770k and MSI Z87 GD65 gaming motherboard. Not sure about the mobo but i'm too impatient to look at the 50+ mobo they are offering at the moment. TTL said the board was kick ass for the price so I'll take his word for it. I also took express shipping because **** waiting. Man it's going to be a step up from my old rig, the 955 without an ssd to 4770k+ 840 ssd

I say that haswell is better than the i7 3770K simply because the mobo will eventually support broadwell chips.

Just make sure you get a REALLY good cooler before you overclock. These things turn to foll on infernos at very low voltage.

Ordered an H220 with some GT fans, should be okay tongue.gif

I would go for a 3770k and delid it. You can easily reach 4.8ghz after that if not higher. In fact I have a brand new extra one laying around that I'm not using...
