Gigabyte GA-P67-DS3-B3 + Question about Z68

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm buying a new gaming rig and thought about getting this mobo with my i5 2500K. I plan on doing some minor OC but nothing too major. Is it good? Also from my understanding most people get the Z68 chipset nowadays. I take that they're only better when you want to do some OC?

No, p67 can do good overklock, like z68, major differences are:

Z68 has SSD caching (smart response technology), and Quick Sync, speeds thing up when transcoding video, and of course support for integrated graphics/video out.

If you can, buy an(for example) ASUS P8z68-v, otherwise P67 (like ASUS P8P67) is good enough.
