For the 2500K if you want to do SSD caching you'll need a Z68 board, apparently the Gigabyte ones make the process of getting it set up simple which is why I got mine. I guess the Z68X-UD3P fits your budget.

If you don't want the caching feature than get this:

I feel so old in this thread. But yeah, like people said wait for Bulldozer or go for the 2500k if you want something now

I like Asus and Gigabyte, MSI is ok as well.

Go with something that has SATA 6 and USB 3, look for a board that has all solid ferite chokes and japanese capacitors. A 12-16+ phase power design is also going to help for OCing.

I don't even understand this thread.

OP, may I suggest starting a new thread? It seems like people are getting a bit overwhelmed.

Hahahaha, I get it, LOL, a Bulldozer... flattened sand >_<



Anyway, back to seriousness, it's all over preference, but the best way to decide between Bulldozer and Sandy Bridge is to wait to see some real comparisons. Personally, I have a hunch that Sandy Bridge is going to be a bit better, but then again, nobody really knows except the guys at AMD




Don't even think about this though, it's still going to take at least another year

The caching feature of the z68 is tailored more to increasing the performance of a large HDD. Using an ssd by itself will yield more performance than it would using it as a cache. I would only recommend this caching feature for someone with a large hdd, lets say 3tb, and are planning on accessing large amounts of data (over 50gbs at a time.) Otherwise, keeping the ssd separate from the hard drive will have higher performance, also this caching feature is nearly useless if we get more technical.

Edit: I would say this thread definitely has gone off the deep end. IT should be moved to an automotive section now, for I fear little computer related knowledge will be gained here.

I believe the driver of the bulldozer would break out in hives if he attempted to conquer a bridge fortified with Poison Ivy
