3770k or 2700K with ASUS Z77
upgrading my mobo from ASUS Extreme IV to ASUS Z77 Sabretooth since I like the cool looks, anyways any benifit upgradeding from 2700K (a good conservative 4.8Oc'er with H100 cooling) to a 3770K?? I will eventually will go IB, but why if the 2700K works well, other than some benefit for PCIe 3.0 for gaming??
Going to be running dual GPUs GTX 670 WF (680 performance with less cost) mostly BF3 etc etc.:rofl:

At this point in time I don't see the need to upgrade your 2700k. It's still a pretty good processor and I am pretty sure you won't see any differences if you upgrade to a 3770K. Heck ! I don't even see the need to upgrade you MB but that's you money so you spend it as you wish...

If you're OCing (which is all the point in the K CPUs) then keep your 2700K.

I have 2 2700K's and I don't plan on upgrading for a while no need 4.5GHz stable. (you say you get 4.8 temps/volts?) thats plenty fast for anything out today (just get an SSD and your set :)

I agree with the sabertooth boards, they are all nice boards.

Yeah the Sabretooth is a fine looking peice of tech, almost art. But it is so common to see in builds now, like the Crosshair's its become mainstraem to run a rig on one of these common "enthusiast" boards. I would like to try some more obscure builds built around some nice ECS boards (I really like there aesthetic), tough sell to a client that has never heard of em though.

Anyways I don't see the benifit of "upgrading" to a 3770k if you get the results you want with your 2700k. I have been trying to find an excuse for 6months now to buy a new Motherboard (still using a DDR2 MA790x-ud4p but I can OC to 4.2 1090t at very low v) but there just is not enough of a possible performance increase to justify the upgrade, it would just make the iching stop. :shok:

Good luck and have fun with whatever you decide.
