Solved Upgrade/new build Tags: Homebuilt Systems Product Last response: January 30, 2011 2:08 AM in Systems Share noobx2 January 22, 2011 4:44:46 PM Hello, I'm trying to put together a new system, but I don't know much about compatibility or bottlenecks. I'm a moderate (but lousy) gamer and we watch TV shows online a bit. This is what I have chosen so far and I will be using my case, DVD drives and monitor. Asus P8H67-M LE w/ DualDDR3 1333, 7.1 Audio, Gigabit Lan, PCI-E x16, HDMI Intel i5 2500k CPU Corsair XMS3 TWIN3X 4GB DDR3 1333MHz CL9 Dual Channel Kit (2 x 2GB) Hitachi 1TB Deskstar 7K1000.C SATA II Internal Drive Kit w/ 32MB Cache Corsair TX 750W Power Supply w/ 140mm Fan Asus ENGTX460 DirectCU GeForce GTX 460 1GB PCI-E w/ Dual DVI, HDMI Any advice you could give would be appreciated. noobx2 More about : upgrade build Best solution JackNaylorPE a b B Homebuilt system January 22, 2011 5:17:54 PM PSU - $90 - Antec TP-650 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

What's the difference between the mobo I mentioned (Asus P8H67-M LE) and the one you listed. At Memory Express the combined cost of my mobo and the i5 cpu is $325 (w/o the game). If the mobo is the same (or close) then I am paying an extra $65 for a "free" game.

Thanks ASUS P8P67 PRO vs ASUS P8H67-M LE The P67 PRO costs $95 more than the H67-M LE (on newegg), therefore you are getting a good deal by paying $65 more. m 0 l noobx2 January 30, 2011 2:08:57 AM Best answer selected by noobx2. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
