  1. Can you get an Intel® Core i3-2105 in your country? This is the same processor as the Intel Core i3-2100 except that it has the Intel HD 3000 graphics. Also check to see if you can get a board like the Asus P8Z68-M PRO which will give you support for the IGP (Intergraded Graphics on Processor) and is a very nice build that you can build around for the future?

    Otherwise I think I would go for the match up of the Intel Core i5-2400 and the Asus P8H67-MLE.

  2. For a budget gaming build, I suggest AMD.

    An Athlon x3 (445,455) or even x2,an AM3+ board, and put the saved money into a better GPU.
  3. Gaming PC without a GPU does not work.
  4. i will buy gpu after 2 months if go for a core i5..in pakistan only intel is avaliable no amd so i have to buy intel...
  5. how much more is the i5-2500k than the i5-2400?

    No, don't do that. You want to buy all your components at the same time and not sit on them for two months.
  7. Just save more money to buy all the components at once unless you really need a new computer.
  8. @ popatim i5 2400 is 16500rs and 2500k is 19000rs little diffrence but i cant put 2500k in h67..one thing i dont overclock but it doesnt make sense if require a board like p67 or z68 and i have low budget :-(
    but if i save money and get 2500k with h67 how much my gaming will improve if i put an average gpu in it?
    and one another thing the discrete gpu work same in h67 and p67 or there will be a diff?
  9. Don't buy the K if you're not overclocking.
