    I am looking into upgrading my Desktop PC that currently has an Asus P7P55 board with an Intel i7 860 processor. I am looking into getting a Asus M5A99X EVO board with an AMD FX 8120 or should I go with an Intel processor.

    My system also have an AMD Radeon HD6970 video card and Seasonic 750watt power supply.

    Thanks for any input.

    I want a board with Sata 6 and USB 3 and possibly PCI E 3.0.

    After much research, I have decided to go with the new Z77 motherboard so I can upgrade when Ivey Bridge comes out.
