Hello guys,
i m building a new pc for the first time
Approximate Purchase Date within a month
System Usage from Most to Least Important gaming,surfing internet.
cpu i3 2120
i m confused which motherboard 2 buy
should i get h61 or p67 or z68
i m not going to overclock so would the p67 be a better option?
does the igpu affects game performance in any way?
can i go sli on h61 or p67 borad?
i want the motherboard to be under 170$
what is the m pro, v le,v in asus motherboards apart from lacking ports does it lack other features?
i m considering buying the gtx 560 will it be enough
to play at 1600*900 resolution
will 500w psu be enough for this build
i m planning on using 2*4gb g skill rip jaws should i get 1333 or 1600


is there any better option that i should consider?
amd a8 3850?

You are not going to overclock because the i3 2120 is locked by intel

^+1 but 2120 is a powerful dual core and will handle almost every game fine.

^hes going with the i3 2120...he has no need for a Z77. H61 doesnt support OC either, so it will save you money as well
No such thing as future proofing mate :D

It's simply overkill because the i3 can't be overclocked. No need to pay for features that won't be used, especially with a budget like that.
