background information
the i5 is getting an upgraded video card but when my 6950 2gb died i found that my z68x ud3h b3 had also died so i replaced it with a asrock b75 pro3-M. i will be moving to 1150 as soon as possible.


just wondering if the asrock b75 pro3-m will bottle neck a gtx 770 or a gtx 780

current system

if you can return that board for a better one and just get a 7950, which is almost equal to 2 6950. HT off . . .

oc the i5 to 4.5 and keep the 7950 at stock will pretty much max out most games at 1080.

good reason to go HD 7970 . the 3GB VRAM and extra bandwidth are useful at that resolution.
