Considering upgrading to an Intel i5...I've had the AMD 1090T since it came out and has served me incredibly well. But thinking it's time to step up and get a newer proc. Since I have to upgrade both MB and CPU, might as well make the switch over to Intel.

Question is do I do it now, or wait for Haswell...Due to release in June, of course be expensive at release though.

I'd like to get a board (not sure if it exists though) with internal USB 3 header (preferably two), six SATA III, and Thunderbolt...

Waiting is no fun!! USB 3.0 seems to be a rear panel feature on any board I looked at. Up to 8 of them these days (all out back, none as headers).

I don't have many devices to know what exists - But why USB 3.0 headers? What uses them? Even internal devices I have seen (like hubs) seem to have external cables to pass through to the back of the case.

For things such as Front USB 3 ports on cases....

I would like Dual USB 3 internal headers because cases are going to start coming with four USB 3 ports on the front...

If I go now, might have to check into this board, ASUS P8Z77-V PRO/THUNDERBOLT. Looks to have everything I need.

I like my all in one card reader with usb3.0 header. Although I had to purchase a pci card to use it, I still like it better than routing a special blue usb to the back panel.
