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.

Thanks for the info.

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.
