More about just clarification sandybridge
  1. It'll work! Just so you know, the B75 chipset won't let you use the HD Graphics in the chip
  2. Don't worry, the RAM doesn't affect the CPU in terms of compatibility. You've got to check it's compatibility with the motherboard and the one you've chosen has DDR3 support so it will support your chosen RAM.
    Good luck and you're all set to go :)

  3. Thanks guys. another thing ivy or sandy?
  4. I'd go Ivy, just because Intel are bringing out a new one called Haswell, so it'll be getting a bit outdated soon. Alson the Ivy Bridge ones tend to be faster with better technology and are very nicely priced. This one seems decent : http://www.scan.co.uk/products/intel-core-i3-3225-s-1155-ivy-bridge-dual-core-33ghz-3mb-smart-cache-retail

    Hope that helps :)
  5. ... Or this Ivy one for only a little more than the Sandy Bridge:

  7. No problem :) Also, if you aren't having a graphics card, the Ivy Bridge has a better integrated graphics system (HD 4000) than the Sandy Bridge.
