  1. Are you gaming or what...

    and price range?

    And Intel's better than amd in single threaded performance. AMD chose to go the route of adding cores instead of beefing up the cores themselves.

    Most programs don't use more than 4 cores so since the Intel cores perform better than AMD cores, a quad core Intel will always beat a quad core AMD.

    But AMD is usually a good bit cheaper...
  2. yes i am for gaming........all games in high graphics and want to run all the games smoothly...
  3. price range only for cpu is 192 euros.....but i want any mobo in very cheap price as i can't afford above 44 euros for MoBo
  4. http://pcpartpicker.com/mr/amazonuk/asrock-motherboard-h61mdgs You can not overclock on this motherboard so i5-2500 would be better for cpu

    Don't expect much in terms of overclocking (or any overclocking) with such a low priced motherboard.

    Cheapest Z68 motherboard i see on amazon uk is 71 pounds....

    Cheapest p67 motherboard is 70 pounds...


    And no, you cannot overclock with that motherboard he posted.
