  1. Assuming you are using the same proc and want to stick with gigabyte, this mobo takes advantage of the z68 chipset and seems well reviewed for a decent price.

  2. asrock boards overclock better, if you have a k series cpu

    I do have a i52500k. but what kind of board would you recommend?
  4. anything in the asrock line overclocks like a champ. i can hit 5.1ghz and higher.

    you might want to go with z77 over z68. i mean if you are doing an upgrade may as well leave yourself open for an ivybridge upgrade w/ full features.

    really it comes down to how much you want to spend and what features you are looking for.

    asrock extreme 3, 4, 6... whatever really
  5. the motherboard you mentioned is fully featured, why would you want to replace it?
  6. This is my build.

    My Computer Specs:
    OS: Windows 7 64-bit
    CPU: Sandy Bridge i5-2500k CPU@3.3GHz OC at 4.3
    MOBO: Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD4-B3
    GPU: EVGA Nvidia GTX 460
    RAM: Corsair Dominator 6GB
    PSU: 650 Corsair
    CASE: Zalman FATALITY
    MOUSE: Logitech G500

    if not the motherboard. maybe get a new graphics card RAM and maybe a better PSU?
  7. Best answer
    psu is good. is your ram running in dual channel mode? i would get a new graphics card.

    i wouldnt replace the mobo.

    edit: have you considered an ssd?
  8. Yes I have and its on my to do list.
    I really want to get a new graphics card for sure.
    i'm getting a 23 inch monitor from a friend for 85 bucks.
