    2nd gen is fastest of those. However motherboard availability for LGA1155 is serious problem and will get even worse.

    Thanks for your advice man, I managed to get an ASUS P8Z77-M, i5 2500k (happily running at 4.2GHz /w stock cooler) and 1 stick of 8GB of DDR3 Fury Hyper X. Damn I'm so happy with the upgrade!!! Sidenote: I managed to lower the price to 256$ for those 3 components :D :D :)
