Looking to go Intel this time around

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
So, I sold my sig rig and now I want to build an Intel gaming machine complete with Nvidia GPU(s). However one thing I liked about AMD was that I didn't have to pay a lot to get decent performance. What would you say is the best performing setup without spending more than $600? Case and RAM are already taken care of.

list the parts you plan on buying?

like what parts you need? do you need another GPU? etc?

p67 supports overclocking with k chips (2500k & 2600k)

z68 supports overclocking and uses the integrated graphics in 2nd gen i3/i5/i7 chips .. virtu , ssd caching , other boards also have support for the upcoming ivy bridge chips

Would it be best to go for the boards that support Ivy Bridge? And the build looks good, except that I might have to wait a little longer so I can kick a few more bucks to get a 560.

Do you plan you getting IB? Any good P67 or Z68 board within your price and needs is good enough.
