What chipset MB for I5 2500k to run intel graphics on chip and overclock

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I am building a new pc for my sister. I am trying to decide on a build. I am considering a Intel I5 2500k to use the 3000 graphics in the chip and overclock. I was wondering what board or boards support this functionality. Since my sister is not a gamer and only wants to edit music and video while streaming and surfing. I believe the I5 2500k may be the best fit rather than an AMD cpu with graphics card.

If I decide to keep it stock. That should still be more than enough for her; don't you think?

I am considering a ASRock Z68 PRO3 GEN3 LGA 1155. Or do you think a P67 would be enough? I am just looking for something that will last a while I can upgrade later. Why I am considering overclocking her machine in the future when she decides to add a video card.

go z68 if you want to overclock AND have integrated video. FYI P67 boards disable the integrated video.

Or go with an i3 2100 and keep it stock, she won't notice the difference.

To use the igpu and overclock you will need the z68 boards
They are basically the p67 and h67 together with a couple of extra features thumb.gif
