  4. i7-960 or i5-K ???

    The only i5-ks I see on Newegg are the 2500K (Sandy Bridge LGA 1155) and 655K (LGA 1156).

    The only one that makes sense (compared to the i7-960) is the 2500K, which requires an H67 or P67 motherboard. Forget about the P55 motherboards.

  6. How are the h67 or p67 better?
