    It is time for my old dual core cpu to be replaced with a new quad core one,but this means i need a new motherboard too.
    I have not shopped for either item in a few years so any help as to what i should get would be appreciated.

          i7 4770K + MSI MPower motherboard. With brak fryday bunderoos you should be able to get something similar or close at less 400$.

            What kind of computing are you planning on doing (e.g. just games or video editing or etc.)? Are you planning on overclocking? Planning on running SLI/Crossfire? What's your budget?
