Which Upgrade? P8Z68 Deluxe or Another 8GB RAM.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Alright so i have a lot of the pieces for my computer, but I have one last order to make on Newegg. Right now my order is at $480, and i need to add another $20 in order to have 12 months to pay it off with no interest.

The main things i am thinking about changing are my motherboard, or adding another cd/dvd drive.

I am planning on getting the Asus P8P67 Deluxe mobo. Should I upgrade to the P8Z68 Deluxe? Should I add a 2nd CD/DVD Drive?

Any other suggestions? A full list of everything I have for this computer can be found HERE.


Edit: I have narrowed it down to either getting the P8Z68 Deluxe or adding another 8GB of Kingston HyperX, giving me 16gb. The RAM is 1.65v so would that make this system more instable having all 4 slots filled? Would i be able to reach 4.5ghz still easily?

The z68 upgrade is a valid option. I may also suggest some canned air? You're bound to need some eventually

I would disagree with the 2nd dvd drive, not needed.

Looks like you have a very solid setup so far. Why not get something like a new flash drive? On newegg they have the First from Asia stuff witch is pretty funny and cool.

I'm sure you can spend $20 bucks in there

I am getting a Datavac for christmas, so no need for canned air.

I have an Adata 16gb USB 3.0 flash drive already.



Edit: Or I could stick with the P8P67 Deluxe and add another 8gb of RAM. Would having all 4 slots filled still allow me to get to 4.5ghz?
