that's what I said..;)
I'm going to say this once more.
make sure you get a Z68 motherboard..
Yea I was just a little slow on getting it out there.
When it comes to gaming very few of games can take advantage of more than 4 threads. For this reason the hyper-threading on the Intel® Core™ i7-2600K has very minimal value when you are gaming. Now if you are going to be doing some heavy audio or video creation work than the Intel Core i7-2600K is a better processor.
So a better value for that $100 is to buy a small SSD like the Intel SSD 320 40GB and use it with the Z68 board and the Intel SRT (Smart Response Technology) and use that to improve your overall system performance.
