I would definitely buy a Z68+2600K instead of 2500K+P67+GPU. For about the same money you can get up to 70K PPD if crunching 6903/04s in native Linux, It's a no brainer to me.
RAM speed does make a difference, and That Eco kit may not do 2133MHz 9-11-9 at 1.6V, or if it does, you may end up loosing WUs if it gets a little unstable. buy a faster RAM kit at stock.
That Ram was posted earlier in the thread, and unfortunately is not available in Australia.
The build needs to be a 2500k to fill a vacancy in a current folding team, plus i have my current 2500k which i want to push to the limit and the new one i purchase is going in my sigrig for a 4.5ghz overclock.
Im aware not all ram kits are equal, but those ECO's were OC'd by a fellow forum member, so im willing to give them a shot, even if i have to use more voltage and slacker timings then him, i should be able to get a stable 2133.

And on the debate about the 2600k verse 2500k, im still undecided, i could get the 2600k and use it in my sig rig for a 4.5ghz OC (air) and in windows, i might be able to match my 24/7 folding rig in ppd if they both fold bigadv's... am i on the right track?
Edit to add:

Would this Thermaltake 450w litepower
do the trick?Edited by Ishinomori - 8/18/11 at 12:01pm
