IMO, why compromise with any of the mentioned boards when you have a low-end GPU to install - e.g. one that you may surely upgrade in the future....couple of years maybe the CPU too - though the i3-2100 is sweet.
All H67 boards give you the onboard graphics, so why not go with a P67 board - I mean, you've got the GPU, I assume from the wording.

H61 vs. H67: the H61 has 10 USBs to the H67s 14, 4 SATA2 (6 on H67) and H61 has no SATA63, so if you want to go SSD later, you can't. It also has fewer PCIe lanes (6 vs 8), no RAID. And, of course, there is no GPU boost on the H61.
If you are choosing between those 2, stick with the H67 for future-proofing.
If the choice were P8H67-M EVO or P8H67-M PRO, I'd go with the EVO for it's 8 phase power.

1.ASUS P8H67-M LX
2.ASUS P8H67-LE
3.ASUS P8H61 PRO(IN CASE THIS IS BETTER)

The P8H67-m LX will support your HD 4670 easily.
Go for it.

Get the H67 series, and the i3 2100. Dont get the GPU now, wait. Dont get it twisted, the graphic processor inside intels chip is better than the average onboard graphics processors. It can run a game like starcraft 2 on medium settings quite well on a 740p resolution monitor. Later add a better GPU when you save more.

you have to get the "H" series, it will allow you to use the chips graphics procesor, if you chose the "P" series you WILL HAVE TO GET A GPU.
