H61 chipset is somewhat limiting but won't stop ya from using a discrete card

Another chipset that was released late on. The H61 is pretty much the same as the H67 but are designed for the bottom end of Sandy bridge builds. Whilst marginally cheaper than H67 chipsets they lack the following features;

Native USB 3.0 ports
Native SATA III ports
Clear Video Technology

They also have less memory slots (only 2), Less PCI-E Lanes and less USB 2.0 ports.

H61 is only recommended for users that can do without those features, are not too bothered about the upgrade potential of the motherboard and simply cannot afford to step up to a H67 chipset.
