    As far as i know, Z68 boards will need a bios update, but will support IVB chips? :S
    Although yes, I do agree that a Z77 board will be better.

    Gooby still seems fixed on getting the 3770k so i won't bring that up again :P

    That netcard.
    Why? :\

    Not 100% that I will get a cable, however I am trying to get it.

    That card will fit in pci x 16 by the looks of it.

    PCI x 16 = a slot similar to what GPU's mount into?

    No those are PCI-E (Express)

    Your chosen board does have a PCI slot though so you'll be fine:

    Asrock Z77 Extreme4 spec
    CPU: Intel i5-3570k (4.5GHz) MB: ASUS Z77 Sabertooth (uefi 2003)
    GPU: Asus 280X TOP (1080MHz/1700MHz) RAM: Corsair LP/LV white 8GB 1600MHz
    SSD: Samsung 840Pro 256GB + Crucial m4 128GB (040H) PSU: Seasonic 620M CASE: Corsair 500R (White/Black) Monitor: LG 237L-BN IPS
    Current build! ||Old Build || Bitdefender Total Security 2014 || AV-TEST Jan/Feb 2013

    So everything will fit correctly? Sorry for asking so many questions, just want to be sure.
