My MSI motherboard K8T Neo2 died few days back after 6+ years.
So I am planning to buy the following new Intel Processor and mobo,

DH67VR Intel motherboard and i3-2100 Processor

Please suggest if this Intel motherboard is good to go, or shall I buy one of these, MSI H67MA-E35, Gigabyte H67M-D2-B3 , ASUS P8H67-M ?

Also please clarify on the below points,

1) Does the Intel motherboard has Onboard Graphics to connect my VGA cable from monitor?

2) Which RAM should I buy for the Intel board? 2 GB DDR3 I am planning to buy. And if so, 1066 or 1333 ?
And which brand, Corsair or transcend?

3) I am having old Cabinet bought in the year 2005 but in good condition. It has only 1 cooling fan at back side. Can I use the same one for the above products or dual cooling fan cabinet is recommended?


Thanks in advance.

The Intel Desktop Board DH67VR has a DVI-I port and an HDMI port that supports dual independent displays when using an Intel processor with Intel HD Graphics.

The Intel Core i3-2100 Processor comes with on-die Intel HD Graphics 2000 so the DVI-I and HDMI ports on the Intel Desktop Board DH67VR will be useable.

You will have to use a DVI-I to VGA D-Sub adapter/converter if you want to use the VGA cable from your monitor.

Get 1.5 V DDR3 SDRAM DIMMs. Preferably DDR3 1333 MHz. Corsair would be the preferred brand.

What is the make and model of the chassis from 2005?

Is it an ATX Mid-Tower or ATX Full-Tower?

If it's an ATX Mid-Tower, and you don't plan on adding a discrete graphics card that generates a lot of heat, then you should be fine.

Ok.. Thank you.

DH67BL board is slightly costlier than DH67VR . Is it better than the other or both are same?

And both are micro-ATX or ATX boards?

Here is a comparison between the Intel Desktop DH67BL and DH67VR http://ark.intel.com/compare/55526,50098 . The big difference between them is the support for the built in software RAID.

For DH67VR, it shows # of SATA Ports as nil and # of SATA 6.0 Gb/s Ports as 2
I am not sure if both are same and the difference between them.
But I need a SATA port compulsarily to connect my SATA Hard disk drive.

Please confirm if I can connect my SATA HDD in DH67VR.
Thanks.

The Intel® Desktop board DH67VR has a total of 2 SATA 3 (6Gb) ports and no SATA 2 ports. Yes this is a really strange board http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/desktops/desktop... . So you would be only able to connect 2 SATA devices to this board without using an add-in card.

And my LCD monitor is having DVI-D input and VGI as well. But the Intel mobo has DVI-I and HDMI outputs.
So will I be able to connect DVI-D cable from my monitor to this mobo directly?

Please confirm.
