so i sold / traded my sig rig and am now building a new one, the cpu and mb are up in the air though, so far i just ordered a phantom 410 case and a corsair 800w gaming series psu, the mb i ordered they just discontinued, so now i have to pick a new one, so i have $200 already paid into one on ncix.ca, wondering what mb on the site people would recommend, i'm still not 100% on the cpu i'm going with but it will probably end up being a 2500k or 2600k.

P8Z68-V PRO with a 2500K - can't go wrong with that combo.

Do you have a colour scheme?

that's along the lines of what i was thinking, i was also looking at the asus maximus iv, but my case is white and blue so i was going to try and use those colors for everything, my last scheme was black and blue, probably alot easier to color match components too than the white / blue.

If you're going with a blue/white or blue/black scheme then the PRO will look very nice thumb.gif

i just ordered it up, i have a spare 16gb of kingston genesis hyper x 160mhz blue ram that should match it good too and a spare hd5770 until i get a gtx680 or pair of gtx580's, should be a good rig when i'm done, only problem now is i've ordered everything but the gfx card and can't afford the mouse lol, i think i'm getting the R.A.T. 7 Contaigon mouse since it's a white / blue edition.
