I won a i5 680 and want to build a system around it. I'm looking at using this machine for internet, gaming, movies(in the future bluray), and would like something that is somewhat future proof for awhile. I may try to oc. I currently don't have a good graphics card so the h57 is appealing. Are there any disadvantages to using a h57 mobo over a p55?

The only big disadvantage is typically the lack of support for dual graphics cards. For a single card or on-board, the H57 is a good choice... IMO

Thanks for the replies! what are good h57 and p55 boards? I'm looking for something under $150. I also may overclock in the future. Something thats not too difficult to configure yet is robust and has some options.
