Go with a Gigabyte P67-UD4 and a 2500k. The UD5 doesn't offer enough additional features to justify the $$$. And a 2500k is more than sufficient and will save you ~$70 to $100 over a 2600k depending on where you buy it.

ok cool i wont bother with the ud5, how does the Gigabyte P67-UD4 compare to the Asus Maximus IV Extreme. Mind you just had a look , price wise the Gigabyte P67-UD4 is a lot cheaper than the Asus Maximus IV Extreme.

You cannot compare the UD4 to the Maximus, the Maxiumus is the best of the best on Asus's side.
A better comparison to the Gigabyte UD4 is the Asus P8P67 Pro.
The ONLY reason to justify the Maximus is if you plan on doing more than 2 graphic cards, in which case this isn't the scenario.
So choose between the UD4 and the P8P67 Pro, those seam to fit your needs at the lowest price point.
PS I don't think the Maximus will even fit into your case.
And reviews don't matter so much, you will get a solid performer on this socket no matter what board you choose.

Edit, as far as RAM goes, that RAM is unnecessary, just go with this RAM

Your money will be better spent (and definitely more noticeable) on an ssd.

150+140+40+220 = 550, that leaves you with quite a bit of future upgrade room, or current playing room.
I would cut cash were ever you can (by picking my suggested mobos and ram) and think about an after market CPU cooler, better graphics (if you need it) or possibly even an SSD (which will make the biggest difference)

Ok i see where your coming from, i do plan to get another ati 6950 later this year for cf, I have a OCZ SSD which i forgot to mention 60gb i think.

I have cooler Master V8 which i used on my lga775 cpu. Can this be used on the Sandy bridge processor , i know you need an extra bracket for the 1366 cpus , just not sure wether il need one for this.

am sure my case can support an Eatx Mobo, correct me if am wrong though, my case is a Thermaltake VG4000SNA Xaser VI Aluminium

The P8P67 Pro and the UD4 can both CF your cards. By the time you think you need 3 cards then it is probably time to upgrade at that point any ways. So IMO the maximus is unneeded.
Yes your case does support eatx.

The V8 may have came with the correct bracket, if you bought it pre 1156 then you will have to buy one from somewhere, I THINK (NOT SURE) that you can buy the hyper 212, or almost any cooler master cooler and swap brackets, and then put the 212 on your old rig (that is if you are keeping it).
Or alternatively you can buy the bracket only from here: http://cmstore.coolermaster-usa.com/...roducts_id=391

If you already have an SSD, then you could just bank the $$ till next upgrade.

ok cool i shall purchase this bracket , most of the bits from my old rig have been sold

I know i should get the P8p67 , but for some reason i want the MIVE. il have to refrain haha

I have just realised il be using the system for doing work at uni , so i will be running multiple software such as adobe cs4,web development software aswell as programming software. would it be a better idea to get a 2600K as its got more cores??

Few people have told me to wait till just the new amd bd cpus are coming, worth the wait??
