  1. More info, please. Yes, it'll function, but what do you want to use it for? If you're going to be doing any overclocking, you should get a better board.
  2. Im using it in a budget gaming pc, paired with an i3. I want something better then an H61, so i can upgrade to an i5 2400/2500k when the prices drop.
  3. If you can get to a physical Microcenter, you can get a 2500K for $180.

    I'd get a decent board that can handle reasonable OCing. The Foxconn would probably work, but go for an ASRock Z68 Extreme3 to be sure. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157271&Tpk=z68%20extreme3
  4. Couple problems 1. No microcenter in my state. 2. My budget is about 300$ or so for case, memory, cpu, and mobo, and the case and memory already take up about 100$ dollors of it.

    Well you said it all, ok reviews, fits you budget and has the features you want. You can extend the warranty for $10 if you want. You really have to jump the price quite a bit to get much better. Here is a link to Tom's reviews of lower priced boards (http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/z68xp-ud3-dz68db,2980.html). As you can see the price of this board is the lowest for a z68. You always get what you pay for so no need to compare this board to one costing $300. It fits your situation well so I would say go for it.
