You need a new motherboard (with win8/8.1 Ready label). I suggest motherboards on H71/H77/Z77 chipsets
H61 is not a good companion to your i5-3570 anyway.
Thanks for your timely reply.
That is what I was afraid of. I love my i5-3570 (Passmarks at ~7400) but it has a 1155 socket and finding a MB with this and an H71 or 77 chipset is difficult. I've seen Intel models that get bad reviews. So I will continue hunting or bite the bullet and just upgrade the CPU as well. Thanks again, Brian
