Motherboard: P8P67 or P8P67 Pro?

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I already have my video card and CPU. Video card was a gift from friend for free so I didn't get to choose what I wanted and the processor I got from my cousin for $160 (He works at Intel). I'm not quite sure about the RAM, originally I went with 4GB but I just put 8GB to be safe. I don't really mind how the case looks like as long as it's cheap and it's good. For the motherboard I'm waiting for the P8P67's to come out but I don't know which to get? P8P67 or P867 Pro. Does anyone know the difference? Also I was hoping if you guys could tell me if all the parts fit together so I could order all the parts I don't have except the MOBO by tonight.

I'm looking to play Battlefield 3 on the highest settings I can at 1920x1080. Anyone know what settings I could probably take? High at the very least?
Thanks!

Those parts will work together. To play at 1920x1080, you will likely need to buy another 460 and SLI them.

Alright thanks just ordered the parts. Damn right when I thought all I needed left was a MOBO.. now I have to save up $135 for my mobo and $250 for GPU. But my 460 will still be able to play games even without another one right now right?

Sorry for double post but does getting another 460 mean I'll need double the amount of power supply? So 1100 watts?

No! You can do it with the 650W, but I would get a 750W to have some extra power for other addons later.
