So, as my last Sandyset burned out (due to unknown reasons), I bought a H67 motherboard from my local store to test if the CPU was working as they didn't have any other motherboards that support my i5 2500k for sale. Now I'm left with broken P8P67 EVO motherboard and an i5 2500k plus the H67 motherboard and I've got no idea what to do with it.

I live in Finland and the reselling market is pretty small here so it's not an option to resell it.

At the moment I'm using an i3 540 and an Asus p55 motherboard as my main rig.

I'm a little short on money but I could grab an extra couple of euros to buy sub 200€ cpu for it.

Now I face the real question, should I just leave it in my closet without having anything to do with it or spend some cash and make it my main system even though I can't overclock it.

The thing is, if I made it my main system my i3 system would become useless as it has no display output. I have a gtx 460 that I use as my GPU so if I was to use the Sandy Bridge rig as my main rig, I would have to transfer the GPU to that system.

What would I use the i3 system for then?
