    Will a i7-4770k fit in a Asus Rampage iii(x58 chipset)

    Title pretty much says it all...

    I need to know if I buy an i7-4770k if it will fit in my Asus Rampage iii Extreme.

    Chipset: Intel x58

    If not, what recommended

    mobo(looking at a Z87)
    +
    CPU(looking at the i7-4770k)
    +
    looking to buy a new GPU
    gtx 780 - Cheap

    gtx 770 - favored so far since its cheap and isn't too far behind 780, any recommendations on which one? Probably looking at a 2GB UNLESS recording/streaming uses Vram I'd pick up the 4GB, besides that I only have a resolution of 1600x900 so 2gb should be alright.

    gtx 680 SLI(If I can find this cheap, but i'd prefer a 770)

    Also I currently have a Xeon W3570 3.2 - If anyone dosent recommend me upgrading this to a 4770k I'd gladly like to save the $ if I could just pickup a new GPU, but if my frame difference would be quite noticeable I may just sell my whole old PC(mobo+cpu+gpu) to just fully upgrade.

    No it will not. You need to buy an LGA1150 Motherboard to be compatible with the 4770k.

    For someone who is a regular in this section, you sure do make some stupid statements.

    Sorry, if I get anything wrong, blame my lack of sleep.

    I've been really stressed lately, and only gotten 1-1 1/2 hours of sleep a night.
