3)If I were to take i3 2100,a H67 motherboard,DDR3 1600Mhz which graphics card(1 Gb) will best suit me.
4)***Heard rumours that i3 causes overheating and gradually damages the MOBO.Is it True?
5) Please compare amd equivalents. (as Budget matters) 7)Is there any decent less expensive way to cool the relativily warm PC room.(natural ways are also welcome.)

7)To what comfortable extend can I overclock i3 or i5 or equivalent processors.
