Hey i really need help with a new build, and its only going to be for gaming! I was trying to build one before but for some reason newegg.ca and newegg.com dont have the Sandy Bridge cpu's anymore, anyone know why? nor the Asus P8P67 motherboards.

The "fixed boards" should be back on the shelves by early April.

I think Intel recently decided to continue shipping the defective P67/H67 chips so people could actually get systems up and deal with the exchange later.

If you get a board with extra 6.0 Gb/s SATA slots (like the p8p67 pro), you should be fine as long as you have 4 or less sata devices.
