700 is pushing it for i7 but 800 and an i5 and you can have a killer system since you have everything else. 700 is just going to be hard because 300 of that would be going to the cpu and that leaves 400 for mobo, psu, ram, and gpu.

What are you going to be using the computer for. This will help in making sure you get the right parts.

I5 I think will be my choice since my budget is a little low

haha, I just realized I posted in your thread about 1366 board, lol...

Yeah, going with the i5-2500k is good if you are overclocking. If you are not going to be overclocking then a different i5 will work just fine.

Then next thing you need to ask is what do I need out of my mobo. Do I need the ability to CrossFire or SLI or do you want a board that is able to do both. My board can do which ever one I choose to go with. If you are not going to be running multiple gpu's then don't spend the money on a board that can do it. Most people who think they are going to do it later down the road never end up doing it because they upgrade there system instead of buying another gpu. also do you have usb 3.0 devices, if not and don't think you are going to be using them in the next few years then I would not worry about that in the board.

Most Sandy Bridge boards perform the same, and all over clock about the same. Some are better then others but for the most part there is not a big performance difference like you get in amd boards.

I don't know a lot about the z chip set, but I'm sure there are other people on here that have that board that would be willing to let you know. I know a lot of people on here are still buying the p67 boards because they don't care about the features that the z boards offer. Most of us here are running dedicated gpus and SSD caching is a gimmick if you ask me.
