Help me transition to Intel!!!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, you may have seen me posting alot of "how will this and this work together" or some "should I snag this processor"


Well. I have decided its time for me to hop on the Intel bandwagon. I want some quality Intel products in my rig. I know nothing about Intel, but I am looking to swap out my AMD hardware, for Intel hardware (Motherboard, and Intel)


I have a budget of 380$. I was hoping to get a 2500k for around 200, and then the rest on a mobo. Any recommendations? I would love to take a 2500k to 5 Ghz on air.

Also, if you could stay within Microcenter's website, I would greatly appreciate it, as thats were I am buying.


Thanks!

This could be
Asus:

or
http://www.microcenter.com/single_pr...uct_id=0358066
gigabyte
http://www.microcenter.com/single_pr...uct_id=0358098
or:
http://www.microcenter.com/single_pr...uct_id=0358107
Last one is a bit over your pricerange but worth it (I would spend my bucks on this regarding your budget. And the extra 10$ can be saved quickly or donate by a family member ).
But all these should do a fine job.
Good luck @choosing and soon we welcome you on the dark side.

I would get the asus p67 pro on that type of budget. I had a ud4 and didn't like it and I got a p67 deluxe instead. I haven't looked back...EVER

Yeah! Maybe since you want to help him (i assume)
you could be more specific. Why and what you didn`t like. There are tons of guys out there using this UD4.
Anyway UD4 or deluxe you can`t will _imho_ be both fine.
It`s not like any of these will epic fail.
