No man, no. You need to look at the 9300 if you want good performance.
It is onboard?

I was trying to save you some money. Take a look at the GigaByte GA-E7AUM-DS2H then, it has a nVidia 9400 onboard.

Reason I tend to stay away from the Intel onboards is the bad experiences I had with them, plus the nVidia ones get better driver updates. Frankly I don't care what reviews say about them

Thank you! Think i'll go with the one you recommendation with 9400 Sorry about the budget, change my mind about the budget for the motherboard.

Nice to see it had 16GB support with that motherboard, very useful in the future.

Just in case, is there any better onboard graphic or is 9400 the best on the market?

There are better onboards, but then you would need an AMD CPU, which probably ain't an option since you bought that E8500. Either way, the 9400 is a good onboard, as far as onboard graphics go.

Thank you Rather not go near AMD for a while lol. Any ideas for the RAM? Been looking for 4GBx RAM with very tight timings

If you want some trouble-free memory, the G-Skill PI Black 2x2GB PC6400 is a nice set. Runs at 4-4-4-12 with only 1.8 - 1.9v. High quality 8 layer PCB with an aluminium heatspreader, that memory stays cool at all times.

Already brought E8500 but thanks.

I've notice in this picture There are PCI slot on it. BUT not sure if I need low profile graphic card as different method rather than using onboard graphic?

Here's the measurement:

Case Dimensions - 400mm(L) x 104mm(H) x 325mm(W)

Low profile cards aren't much better then a decent onboard. You might as well settle with the nVidia 9400 onboard.
