  1. I would get a z68 mobo and dump the H61. The future uses and better features make it worthwhile.

    Do you have a link to one that would be good for the build? (newegg pref.)
  3. For a z68 motherboard I would go for the Asrock Extreme 3 Gen 3:

  4. If it is a tight budget, AMD is the way to go. Way cheaper than intel, plus is about as fast. I have a gamer set up, you can check it out on the fourums. Tell me what you think.

    But, nice. Monitor kinda sucks, nice choices other than that.

    "With the sub-$100 Pentiums performing so well, Intel's $125 Core i3-2100 easily beats more expensive Phenom II and FX models. And the $190 Core i5-2400 dominates the sub-$200 landscape without challenge, really. As such, we're almost-shockingly left without an AMD CPU to recommend at any price point."
  6. build looks okay.. similar to this build below:
