MOBO?


GIGABYTE GA-Z68A-D3H-B3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard ??

ASRock P67 EXTREME4 (B3) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard ??


The last two are more expensive, but also have the highest reviews on Newegg. Any suggestions on a motherboard.. And how does everything else look? Thanks a lot.

    If you want to actually use your system now, without a discrete graphics card, you'll have to go with the Gigabyte D3H board. It's the only one that allows the use of the i5-2400's integrated graphics.

    Otherwise, I would recommend the ASRock board.
