Yeah a P67/Z68 mobo is set for Ivy Bridge CPUs as well.

Yeah next gen cards might be just around the corner. A 4870x2 will be aight for gaming at that res for now. When new cards come out though if you plan on playing at 2560x1200, then I'd shoot for 3GB+ of vram, if the newer cards don't have that for whatever reason then at least 2GB.

I'm not to familiar with Z68 boards and which ones are best but I would suggest doing some extensive research before buying. I bought my X58 motherboard before doing extensive research and I regret it.

As for RAM, you have a triple channel kit for the X58 chipset. You're looking for a dual channel kit for Z68 chipsets. Important to change out

Yeah just get a 2x4GB Corsair Dominator dual channel kit.

I feel ya there. I'm on my iPhone almost all day long checking out OCN and it's such a pain to google and then come back here and post and blah blah blah. Do you have access to a laptop at some point? I wouldn't purchase a motherboard until you can properly examine everything and know exactly what you want.

Okay I found just my very old laptop.. oh boy its good to be back on a PC again even though its a laptop lol.

I would prefer having 12gb atleast. Difference between dual and tripple in a head to head match? what about my psu ? Is a 3 year old psu any good still? Lots of money to buy a new PSU and its the same prices as for today back then I paid for my psu.

Got a friend coming over to my place tomorrow. Gonna test my mobo, cpu and gfx and try to see whats the problem is. I think its my mb really.

http://www.komplett.dk/k/ki.aspx?sku=355432 my psu.

Gonna try look on the web the next hours looking for a great mb and rams. That's bassically the 2 main problems of hardware im having when buying new

Triple channel is for X58.... I can no longer really recommend that chipset. Even though it's what I run. Either dual channel on P67/Z68 and you can get 16GB. Or quad channel on an X79 chipset and get 16GB or more, but that'll cost you a pretty penny.
