Will everything work together? Is the graphic card that is built into the Intel CPU better than the one I have now? Which motherboard should I go with? I do plan on upgrading the Graphic Card in the near future.
Yeah I think the intel graphics would be better than that card. That ivy cpu has HD 4000 graphics right?
Your going to want a faster HD, grab a small SSD for windows and programs and use the seagate as storage. I recently bought an OCZ agility 3 60gb (it was cheap and I dont need much space) and its great!
Other than that your build looks solid.
If you want to overclock (or even if you dont, ivy runs pretty hot) grab a cheap air cooler, all the americans will recomend you the coolermaster 212, I've got a scythe mugen 2 which I can recommend, nocuta of course makes the best air cooler. (The D14 I think its called?) Or you can get contained Watercooling kits like the corsair H70...
You could use the nvidia card as a physix card, but it might slow down games cause its so slow.
Yeah I guess the SSD isn't a must, but it makes your whole PC alot faster, and its pretty cheap.
I am running the older asus p8z68-v and I love it. It has small problems every once in a while but ASUS keep making bios updates so its all good. I dont see any reason to go with the pro or deluxe version unless you need the extra 2 sata ports or whatever it is they offer. Or if you plan to do an extreme OC you will need a very good mobo, but I've gotten my i5-2500k to 4.5ghz on this board with no problems.
Of course the ASrock is also very good, from what I can tell there are minimal differences between it and the ASUS.
