If you already had a Sandy Bridge chip I would say stay with it. If you are choosing between the two and you are getting a Z77 board then go with the Ivy Bridge chips. thumb.gif

My first build and love the quality and look of the Z77 - I am not a gamer so will probably not utilise a lot of the potential of this board but because of my studies i will be in and out of the case fiddling around with the various ports so the fact that the majority of the components will be protected is a big plus for me.

My questions are:

1) My existing monitor has only a VGA input and the board has HDMI and Display ports - what type of converter should I use

2) As I will not be gaming and putting the CPU under much pressure can I get away with using just the CPU fan (probably i5)

3) Is the Z77 overkill for someone like me who is not a gamer.

Thanks
