I am about to build a new computer and have been looking into which motherboard type to choose.
The current setup looks like this : Intel I5 2500K, Geforce GTX570, AData 8 GB CL9 RAM. I motherboard have to beable to run SLI. The computer will be used for programming and gaming (Battlefield 3).
There is a couple of diffrent types of motherboard, the question is which one to choose?
H67 - This is the version that do suport onboard GPU but do not allow overclocking.
P67 - This seems to be the mint version of sandybridge, there is no extra support för onboard GPU (CPU/Motherboard) and its possible to overclock.
Z67 - This is the new hybrid version (between H67 and P67) that uses the CPU onboard GPU (that exists in for example I5 2500) but do still make it possible to overclock.
This is where it is unclear, is there anything else I have to know? I have heard somthing about choosing a motherboard that suports the next CPU from Intel? Does this mean that the new CPU will be able to run at a motherboards that I buy today? What should I look for?
And then there seems to be up to 3 generations of the Sandy Bridge on the market? Some suports higher rates on the e-SATA(6 GB instead of 3GB) and so on?
