***guess i should add some comment.

If you want overall higher performance then ivy has better performance cpu and mem due to better imc. you might even get better ram frequency's out of current ram i'm not guaranteeing that or anything but could happen if you have a good set.

Imc capable of 3000+ typically if ram is willing/board chosen.

My question is why? i have a 930 @ 4.0 here on guest pc and it does everything quite well tbh. games run above needed fps ect.

If your on a budget of any type i say save your $ for xmas shopping and family if its just gaming buy a new vidcard don't buy into the pci-e 3.0 hype its a non increase atm.
