post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Ok so I have a Very Nice system here But it is on the 1150 Socket and DDR3

I dont know BUT would Like to find out / what is the good average speed these days 4.2 or 4.5 or what ever it is

I am siting on 3.5 right now with 32gbDDR3

So My first question is what is a good processor for gaming ?
If I get a New MB that is a 1151 Socket, does this mean i have to get new memory ? or will my DDR3 work ?

If you get a 1151 board, you'd need DDR4 memory. AM4 is also DDR4. Apparently socket 2066 is going to be in week 25-27 from week 31-35 ( benchlife ).

What motherboard do you currently have? An overclocked 4770k is still a capable gaming CPU if you can get up to 4.5GHz it'd be more cost effective than buying a whole new system
