My System Specs

Default Do I need pcie 3.0?

Do I need pcie 3.0?

I've totally got the upgrade bug and am thinking of completely re doing my system. I've been drooling over the 680 and I really want to wait for the 670/660ti specs before I purchase a kepler card. But this brings me to the motherboard. I found a great deal on a p67 mobo on this site bst section. But it only has pcie 2.0. I do plan to upgrade to ivy bridge if need be for boosted performance with 3.0 but I doubt I will go z77. It doesn't offer anything I need over a z68/p67. I am also not set on ivy if it doesn't warrant that much performance increase either with cpu performance or pcie 3.0.

So what do you guys think I should do. Go for the used p67? Or wait for ivy and get a pcie 3.0 motherboard?
