    I do not know what retail prices are like in your country, as I don't know where "your country" is, but for a general recommendation for that CPU (which I own), I really rate the Asus P8P67 Pro B3 board. Good mix of features, great overclocking, SLi & Cross-fire, at a decent price. No issues at all with mine and very, very nice overclocking features on these boards.

    That's my recommendation as I own and use one myself and love it.
  2. I second that, I have a P8P67-M Pro and is really good. I will stick with Asus from now on. I recomend the asus p8p67 evo at $200, or the p8p67-M Pro for just $150 (maybe less if your agresive shopper).

    Add a little more and get the Asus P8Z68 V-Pro.. Newer chip, adds a backup graphic option and also enables using quick sync along with CPU overclocking (can call it as P67 + H67).. Has excellent reviews too..

    Team Group Xtreem LV PC3 16000 DDR3 LV 2000

    Cheap. Bad Ass performance. Available globally at good prices.
    I use that stuff myself and it's kick ass.

    Check your local pricing, but in my country it was just over $200 for 2x2 GB DIMMs, so it should be well under $200 in the states.


    Faster stuff available too, but DDR3 2000's a good price / performance point IMO.
