The H67 should not bottleneck an Intel® Core™ i5-2500 processor any more then a P67 or Z68 board would. The biggest issue with that board is that it won't allow you to overclock the Intel Core i5-2500K.

2nd half of 2012, so about 12 - 15 months from now.

You should cthink about MOBO manufacturer as well. As I noticed in my own research even though mobo has H67 chipset, it still can be very different depending on manufacturer. And perfomance is different. I would personally advice EVGA. I have their Z68 and performance is exactly as advertized. Had DELL mobo before, and had to return due to performance problems.

what is the use of overclocking for a single gpu like gtx 560ti..im not a sli customer and i think the i5 2500 will be fine at stock speeds and my monitor is a 60hz led monitor so i will not able to experience 100 fps gaming..so why do i need overclocking..

asking PC enthusiasts what the point of overclocking is like asking a car enthusiast why they bought a V10 audi R8 instead of the V8 version even though they will both be driven on public roads....
