Happy holidays everyone! I am building a new rig ( gaming or something powerful ) , anyway I already bought the power suppy ( Rosewill RBR1000-M Bronze Series-- newegg $89.99 ) is a 1000w, the Case Tower ( Rosewill Thor V2 Full Tower--newegg $99.99 ). I have a spare OCZ 4GB DDR3 memory and DVDrom optical drive as well as a Palit GTX 260 graphic card which I am switching with the EVGA GTX 470 graphic card that's currently installed in my computer. This will be my third build. I need some expert advice with the p67 chipset and z68, which one is better. I am thinking on buying the Intel 2600k or 2500k sandy bridge processor and I really don't know which motherboard, like I said I need info with p67 and z68. I really like the Asus P8Z68 Deluxe/Gen3. Another thing I am concern is about the 24 extension atx power supply and the 8 pin extension atx/eps. I think I probably going to need those extension cables. I will appreciate some suggestion. Also I have $515.00 to spare just for the board and cpu. Thanks in advances.
bottom line is this.
H67 – Onboard graphics are enabled, while overclocking is disabled
P67 – You need a graphics card for this chipset – onboard graphics is disabled, however overclocking is enabled here
Z68 – You guessed it…best of both worlds. Onboard graphics are enabled, as is overclocking
