Limited budget. Usage is a computer which will be used for my experiments.. hardware and software.. Gaming (racing/strategy.. no fps), occasional movie conversions.. Hackintosh
Planning to do some development on it, but we'll see..
Considering these processors: Intel Pentium G860 or Core i5-2400 Motherboards: Gigabyte GA H61-D2-B3 or a z68 motherboard..
Problem: Like I said, Limited budget. So I can build component by component. I have a HD4770, and I'm ok with it for now. Do I get a good motherboard and then upgarde the processor or do I go in for a decent motherboard and go in for the Core i5?
I also don't think i'll need more than 8 GB or RAM, do you guys see any need for more RAM?

More aboutbetter motherboard processor first
i5-2400 and H61 EASILY. you don't need z68 since you can't overclock the i5-2400 and you don't have SSD.
Thanks for the quick reply Cutebeans!! Was wondering about Ivy Bridge too Does it make sense to go in for the Pentium and wait it out?
