Why not Ivy Bridge?

Need a Z77 board.

Anyone understand all the CPU limitations for making PCI-E 3.0 work? If so, can someone explain it to me? I don't get it. Do I need an Ivybridge CPU to make it work or can I somehow make it work on my current Sandybridge one?

GPUs are barely saturating PCI-E 2.0, so really there's not a lot of point in it right now.

Kinda like USB 3, Sata 6GB/s, IVP 6. We'll need it eventually, which is why the technology is being made.

This is basically what I have and I can run BF3 on High @ 45-60 FPS, almost everything else maxed out.  Although you don't need an 850W PSU, look for a good quality 600-700W.

Depends if you want to leave your options open for SLI/Crossfire etc. If you are considering SLI/Crossfire then a good 850w PSU like the AX-850 would be great (I've got one and am very happy with it). If you only plan on a single card setup then a good quality 650w would be good.

I've got a CX600 and it powers both my 460s absolutely fine.

That's not what I asked.

The device I'm using (an SSD) is saturating PCI-E 2.0, so I want it to go faster.

You didn't ask anything to do with an SSD, so don't be a tool.

When answering a question concerning PCI-E, one normally assumes a graphics card, because PCI-E SSDs aren't as commonplace.

Which is not to say that all video cards will have the same power consumption and people have the same CPU/ overclock/ number of drives etc.

I certainly wouldn't use a CX600 to run my 2xHD6970's, 4 HDDs, 1 SSD, 2 Optical, 6 sticks of RAM, overclocked i7 etc etc.

600w might be fine for your system but if someone is planning a high-end system with multiple video cards I wouldn't recommend a 600-650w PSU. It may be fine, but it may not. That said, it's not like you need to go out and get some super uber 1200w PSU. For most single video card systems a good quality 550w would be fine, but it's nice to have a bit of headroom.

You could say that dismissing questions out of hand based on assumption is being a tool...

Has anyone got any useful input on PCI-E 3.0 CPU limitations?

So I've started having an issue the past few days:

I leave my PC on overnight, with music playing, cos it's just how I sleep. When I wake up in the morning, though, it's "crashed" in a sense. The PC is back to the log-in screen, but when I log in, my browser loads up. This may sound normal, but that's not in my startup options or anything. This leads me to think it's not any normal kind of crash.

Any ideas before I spend some time sorting this?

Ghost coming into your room while you're asleep, changing the music to Justin Bieber.

On a serious note:
Have you checked your power saving settings? Is shutting down set somewhere?
What media player are you using? Does that have some sleep timer on?
Do you get short power outs or fluctuations, which reset your computer?

No idea why your browser would start on boot. Does it (try to) load something?

My 6 month old Corsair AX-850 PSU died Now I've got to RMA it which is going to take weeks.

Do I buy an interim PSU that I can use as a backup later? Or do I spend my uni holidays with my laptop.
