That SSD is fine, but you're going to have very little space once you have the OS on it, so just be prepared to have pretty much all your other programs on the Caviar Blue.

I like the Z68 personally from everything I have read, but unless you plan on upgrading down the line the P67 might be a good way to possibly save a couple bucks. So as far as which one you should go with depends on your budget and what you have available. For those boards you posted, I'd go with the ASUS.

I'd say stick with the 500, but I hate saving money when it comes to the PSU

Out of those graphics cards, I'd go with the 560 over the 460, partially because of specs and partially because of the brand.

^This.
If it isn`t a huge price difference you could go with a z68. Read what new features they have and if you might have use for them. But it is no must have.

Edit: You might want to look into HDDs again- There are some nicer ones out there.
But this depends on your budget. Although the new ones from WD or Hitachi aren`t that expensive.
Just an idea.

Edit2: Regarding the SSD, you might want to hop in the SSD section on this page. Just to make sure. There are a lots of geeks there you can help you even more.

i agree there is no need for Z68 if you are buying a a SSD as a boot drive and your buying a gfx card. There is NO upgrade difference between them two boards.

@Mr.Eiht thank you for the wellcome, such nice people around here.

@Mr.Eiht and @nekromantik

My point of buying Z68 specially Asus is that it will be future proof with PCIe 3.0 and one more query is really no difference in performance in SSD choosing z68 over p67 ?

And is PSU ok or i need bit more?
post #6 of 11
If you plan on getting newer graphics down the line, you'll want a bigger PSU.

There is the SSD Caching but honestly, I wouldn't worry about that.

Asus p67 mobo and Asus gtx 560 what say?
PSU will be ok and SSD will perform well, as
i am not goint to SLI

will you recommand any budget SSD?
post #10 of 11
Windows 7 takes up about 20gigs of space, plus a 30gb will only contain about 27gb of usable space. I wouldn't even bother with an SSD unless you get a 60gb, or preferably 120gb. Your computer will boot quick with an SSD, but your not going to be able to take advantage of load times in game since you won't have enough space for them with 30gb.

The only difference between the P67 and Z68 is on-board graphics and SSD Caching. P67 is fine if you don't plan on using either of those options.

I would check at an ASrock board, same quality as an ASUS but lower price. The ASRock Z68 Extreme3 will save you $50 over the ASUS P8P67 PRO B3. I'm running an ASrock P67 Extreme4 Gen3 and I'm very satisfied. Great overclocker and it posts 8 times faster than an ASUS board. You can pick it up for around $150.

I would definitely get the 560 over the 460, especially if your gaming.

If you get a quality PSU, which Corsair is, then 550w would be fine.
