Haha yeah thanks for all the replies guys.

I'm going to school for computers this fall so I chose the 2600k over the 2500k just in case

8gb is nice to have

Thanks for the suggestion robilar and everyone.

Hey robilar, I think i'll do what you say, and pricematch NCIX prices to directcanada/bestdirect.

I just for some reason don't think I can pick it up from their markham location.

It would have to be shipped to me.

So you think I should get the P8P67 Pro over the UD4 eh?

Also, those bundle deals from NCIX end today

I won't be ordering for another couple of days.

Alright looks like I'm getting the P8P67 deluxe + 2600k now.

Thanks so much for that post man. I'll look for the combo on NCIX.

I really want that 2600k, not sure why, but I feel like it's "insurance" in a way.

May 4th gives me a bit of time, thanks

I just checked here: http://ncix.com/products/?sku=60049&...Bundle%20Deals

And it's for 589. When I check how much I save: it reads 3.00 and some odd cents.

=/

It's cheaper for me to get what I posted in the OP pricematched for 570 subtotal

Sorry for not providing the link, it is $499 but you got to click the link from the 15th anniversary sale page. I think I might get myself a kingston v100 64gb ssd there only $75 now!

I think thw 2500K is a better buy than the 2600K but either way, sandy bridge is great. I recently did a benchmark thaty showed that even if I downclock my 2500K to 1.6ghz, it still give me better FPS than my Q6600 @ 3.6 did.

thanks for the link bro... rep+

It turns out to be like this:

Gigabyte P67A-UD4-B3 + 2600k + G.Skill Ripjaws 8GB CL9 1600 = 570 + tax = 644 without ship (I'd pick it up)

OR

Asus P8P67 Deluxe + 2600k + G.Skill Ripjaws 8GB CL9 1600 = 588 + tax = 657.59 without ship (I'd pick it up).

What do you think?

What's the best route? for basically 10 dollars more I can get the P8P67 deluxe.

One last question, would I be able to SLI and still use a PCI wifi card? I know the GA-P67A-UD4-B3 can just fine..

Thanks a lot man.

Amazing. Can't wait to get it. Typing on my last moments of the Q6600 right now, I ship out tomorrow
