Hello all. I plan on purchasing a 2600k setup. The only problem is that I'm not entirely sure what kind of motherboard and RAM I should get. I'm looking for a gaming rig that's gonna last me for at least 2 years. This computer is going to be on practically 24/7. I plan on overclocking, but I'm not sure how that factors into my computer usage time. Most likely I'll just buy an aftermarket heatsink. Considering all the reports I hear on how well it overclock on stock heatsinks, I'm assuming an aftermarket heatsink will take care of any worries I might have leaving my computer on 24/7.
Anyways, all these chipsets with the 1155 make things a bit confusing. I thought it would be helpful to ask you guys - should I wait for the Z68 chipset? Will the benefits help me as an avid gamer? Or should I just get a P67?
Then there's also the case of RAM. I heard anything above 1333 is useless. Is this true? If so, what kind of low latency RAM should I shoot for?
