Hello All,

I'm looking into ordering a new computer, those are the chipsets I have access to in my price range (locally)... Was curious which is superior? They are all Intel MB's, I plan on using an i5-2500k CPU.

I play Diablo 3, WoW and I work on my computer, mostly Word and Excel, along with surfing/researching purposes.

Also, I don't know if this matters but I have a MSI Twin Forz (something) GTX 460 video card.

Thanks,

Rob

The Z68 has all the features of the H67 and P67 combined. With that said, it's also been replaced by the Z77 board

It's for a personal PC, I saw that Z77 chipsets are out and I would assume they are vastly superior, however, the systems built there, in my price range are using either P67, H67 or Z68 (I didn't even see a z77 chipset MB in stock there), I didn't really want to put the computer together myself.

As I think I'm getting a pretty good deal with a i5-2500k, 8 gigs of Kingston, the whole build with a z68 is coming in under $750 (inclusive of a copy of Windows 7) and it's providing me with a 520 GT card for my wife's older computer.

Any Thoughts?

Thanks,

Rob

Those are the last mobos I would make a PC from.

U really cannot shop somewhere else?

Intel mobos are OK, but there are better mobos out there with more features.

I could get from New Egg or somewhere, I would then just have to put the PC together and install Windows myself, not sure if its as good as of a deal, however the components would probably be better....

I'm not a huge hardware guy, I don't really know all the features I need, I just want to be able to play D3 and WoW with 0 lag, on max settings.... I also use my computer for work.

I found a pretty nicely rated Gigabyte z77 MB over on Newegg.. Maybe I will not be lazy and put it together myself?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I'd be looking for something around that price... $100-$150..

I have a total budget of $800 and I already have a GTX 460 2gig Vid Card, Thermaltake 850 gold PSU and I have an Antec 900 case (think its 900?)...

So I would basically need the other components and have enough in my budget to buy a copy of Windows as all my work programs utilize it... Think I could make something better on my own within that budget, given the 3 items I have to work with? Any help or tips would be great!! Like I said, I'm not a huge hardware guy!

Thanks,

Rob

+1 for Antec is awesome. I have several computers in Antec P183s

I've fallen in love with the Corsair 800D though but it is much more expenisve

Corsair 800D is huge : )

I am thinking to get it too.

The 600T is also possibility as I like how the HDD's are fitted and its wider than the 800D.

I still have P180, works well, but I use 9 HDD's and that needs more room.

The 800D is enormous, I was shocked when I saw it. The construction is absolutely unbelievable though, everything is just borderline perfect
