Thank you for the Amazon link, that will save some money. I have been debating the 2500K/2600K for about two or three weeks. Its a hard decision. Sure on one hand I could save $100 and then on the other hand it would be nice to have 2600K which can outperform some $1000 processors.

So can the 2500K. Both require the OC. You gain little performance, it really isn't worth the extra 100 if you can spend it on graphics.

Has anyone had any luck with the case and/or the ASUS P8P67 Pro?
