    do you think that card is the best buy than asus,ggbyte,sapphire? :S
  3. I, for one, would buy a 6870. For the 6850 I would get the XFX dual fan or the Powercolor or the His IceQ but a HD 6870 is about the same price after MIR.
  4. but im pLanning to Xfire 6850 in the future .. 6870 is not that good in Xfire right
  5. You can get the CM Hyper 212+ from amazon for $30

    From what I understand, the Z68 chipset is a combination of the H67 and the P67.

    The H67 had the ability to utilize onboard graphics.

    And the P67 had the ability to Overclock.

    and the features were exclusive to their respective chipsets meaning a H67 couldn't Overclock and a P67 couldn't use onboard graphics.

    P67 were more for Gamers where the onboard graphics was pretty much pointless because of the fact that a seperate GPU was a must for most gaming builds.

    H67 were more for the "workstation" build where there wasn't really much need for Overclocking and where money could be saved by just using the Onboard graphics.


    A Z68 basically has the best of both worlds with Overclocking abilities and the ability to utilize the Onboard Graphics.
    Also allowing for Intels Quick Sync and a feature called Lucid Virtu which allows for one to use both the IGP and a GPU sort of simultaneously. (For example, I could render a video by using the IGP, and play a game at the same time using the GPU and not experience any drop in visual performance.
    It also allows for Intels Smart Response Technology. Basically something that allows one to use a small SSD as a cache for a bigger mechanical drive getting SDD-like speeds with the cheap storage capacity of a hdd.

    For my build, I decided to go with a Z68 as my two main focuses are both Video editing and rendering, and Gaming.

    So it really depends on what your needs are what you want your computer to do. Truth is, Z68 motherboards are not that much more expensive than their P67 counterparts. I went with the ASUS P8Z68 Pro which was actually only $30 more then the ASUS P8P67 Pro.

    So its really up to you.
