Default What should I do My build

Ok my current build is listed in my sig below. the 680i board is an ar version. I been continplaiting a new mobo and cpu was thinking about the evga 750i sli ftw mobo and the e8400 cpu. Will there be any noticable benefit between mobos other than the pcie 2.0? What about the cpu any noticable gains there or should I just leave it alone? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks

If you get a quad core you will be running in circles around even the best dual core.

So, I advise getting a quad core, and then whatever mobo you want, it is pretty much up to you. Do you plan on going SLI anytime soon?
