OK, but that`s a GTX not a GT as you stated, in your 1st post. As I don`t believe there is such a thing.

I don't know about that 1st post. Tired, lost, confused anything but a reason for those numbers. I apologize.

I'm updating the BIOS, getting the i7 3rd gen and hopefully be happy.

Good choice.

Now just save your pennies to get 1 of these, or wait til the 7 series comes out.

MSI N660 TF 2GD5/OC GeForce GTX 660 2GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card - Newegg.com

ASUS GTX660-DC2O-2GD5 GeForce GTX 660 2GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card - Newegg.com

But you probably should update your motherboard to a pci-e 3.0 first.

If only it were that easy. The truth is $ are not laying around my house waiting for a trip to the store. A friend inherited some money and shared $200 for help I've given for years without pay. Of course it works the other way too.

Another friend offered a loan to add to the $200 so I could get i7 and give me his EVGA GeForce GTX 650 01G-P4-2650-KR Video Card - 1GB GDDR5, PCI-Express 3.0(x16), 1x Dual-link DVI-I, 1x Dual-link DVI-D, 1x Mini-HDMI, DirectX 11, Dual-Slot when he builds his new pc when Haskels are available.

Doesn't the BIOS update making mobo 3rd Gen Ready also make it pci-e 3.0 capable?

well48, no it will not make it pci-e 3.0. You will see a big improvement with the upgrade you are making

Found great deal on i7 3770K for $229 which leaves money for 3.0 mobo.
Thanks AddRAM for "But you probably should update your motherboard to a pci-e 3.0 first. "
now, IF , MS will let me transfer 7 PRO OEM over to it.

That's the one thing that kept me from Intel for the last 5 years now they keep changing sockets like crazy I have changed to one other socket on AMD and all my chips were backward compatible

I went from AM2+ to AM3+ that was it The 1155 is a good platform no doubt and the 3770k should run well off onboard graphic but if you do choose a GPU go with a 660 the TI model is almost the same identical if you will

Anyway im with these guys and prices have dropped sick since the mention of Haswell
