Should I go pci 3.0? Worth it?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Right now I have a P67 Asrock pro mobo with a i5-2500k cpu. Im currently upgrading my graphic cards to SLI evga 770 classified cards. Would it be worth it to upgrade my mobo and cpu to get 3.0? I would get a small boost in performance as well in a newer cpu, what do you think? What would be the best cpu to go with if worth doing?

Does it really improve performance vastly? I don't think so.

Not worth it, probably the worst $/performance you could ever spend money on. Look up FPS gains you'd get by spending $ on PCI 3.0 vs PCI 2.0. Bandwidth is NOT a problem yet, nor will it be in awhile. I'd link you to some articles but I don't have access to those right now.
