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$

  1. You are not going to overclock because the i3 2120 is locked by intel
  2. ^+1 but 2120 is a powerful dual core and will handle almost every game fine.
  3. which motherboard would u recommend?
  4. if ur going with i3, get the h61 since you wont be overclocking
  5. ^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

    no need of a z77 board for i3 2120 :p

    Whats wrong with z77 if your getting i3 2120
  16. 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.
