Motherboard decision!

A friend is trying to build a new pc but, many boards are out of stock where she lives and is only able to select from these models, and needs to build this pc for like yesterday

ASRock H67M-GE (B3) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157234

Intel BOXDH67BLB3 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813121506

Asus P8H67-M LX http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_1155/P8H67M_LX/


we wanted to buy this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131711 but is out of stock, we wait 2 weeks and no luck, so we have to choose now


Of those three I liked the asrock because of more ram slots than the asus, I don't know if Intel is a good option...


She is going to use this pc mostly for adobe products to design, like AI and PS, video editing....

she already have these components

Intel i7 2600
2x4 gb corsair vengeance blue with the big heat-sink

what you think?

  1. Get Asus P8H67-M LX, Intel would be the 2nd choice.

    Why not order on line?
  2. Is it 2600 or 2600K?

    Is it this one or the other?

  3. get the p8h67
  4. 2600 not k

    these ram stick



    you sure it will be ok with 2 ram slots ? 8gb ram will be enough for at least 2 years to work with adobe products?

    Why not the asrock? I thought it could be a good choice


    And she needs the pc now, she cant wait to get it delivered she is not in he USA it takes 3 week or more for the courier to get it here. that's why we have to choose those because she got to do a work for someone and is running out of time :/

    OK, 2600 is very poor choice, does she have x64bit windows so she can use all that RAM?
  6. 8gb ram will be enough for at least 2 years to work with adobe products? 

    8GB is OK, but 16is golden, since adobe products loves RAM.

    But she can live with it for sure.

    Why not the asrock? I thought it could be a good choice

    Well, with that CPU, she can get it.


    What country is she in?
  7. Yes she does have win 7, in venezuela... but the port is collapsed too many stuff coming in after december and it takes a while to get it here due customs...

    and whats the difference with the processor? she wont be overclocking and h67 cant overclock afaik, unless the asrock is poorly made and will fail after some use, if that's the reason tell me and she will buy the asus.

    I see, the circumstances suck's : ) It is OK than, ASUS is ASRock.

    But to use the 8GB RAM, she still needs x64bit Windows. Does she has it?


    ASRock Inc. is a manufacturer of motherboards, netbooks, and HTPCs, based in Taiwan and chaired by Ted Hsuu. It was established on May 10th, 2002 and invested by and subordinated to Asus.
  9. Yes she does, only the motherboard is the thing she needs to start to build it,

    I still don't understand why the change from asus to asrock due the processor not being K, lol you got me confused
  10. OK, Intel 2600K CPU is unlocked for overclocking.
    2600 is locked and would suck to be overclocked.

    But the difference is only about $20, that is why I said poor choice : )

    I am running mine @ 4.5GHz, so for $20 I got extra performance ...

    But her situation is different and I didn't know the reason.
