3) Would the IGP of the 2500K, on an H67, function in tandem with the future video card ? (i.e. SLI or such) (assuming I choose my video card wisely...)

Thanks!

If you buy an H67 board, you lose the ability to OC the processor as far as I know. So buying an H67 and a 2500K is a really bad idea if that is true. The IGP cannot be used in conjunction with any dedicated video card. You should almost certainly get a P67 board and a dedicated graphics card.

Now I'm wondering 2 more things then :

4) Can I then get a 2500K that I'd OC, with a P67 board, but still be able to use the internal GPU (no dedicated video card) of the SB ?

5) What's the minimal amount of $ I should at least spend to get a decent card, considering I'd have a 2500K and a good board, and 8GB fast ram (and maybe an SSD) ?

I don't play games much (and when I do, they ain't big FPS crunchers, except maybe for Gran Turismo 5 or such), I don't photoshop or video edit, BUT, I plan on setting up a nice Digital Audio Workstation (compose, arrange, use lots of virtual synths and effects (VST's), mix with MIDI, etc...) (hence the 2500K and good ram)

PS : oh, and can I still use XP with those amazing hardware bits ?

No, P67 = unlocked multi, locked IGPU
H67 = locked multi, unlocked IGPU

5) What's the minimal amount of $ I should at least spend to get a decent card, considering I'd have a 2500K and a good board, and 8GB fast ram (and maybe an SSD) ?

You could probably get away with a video card in the $150-200 range and it will support most mainstream games.

I don't play games much (and when I do, they ain't big FPS crunchers, except maybe for Gran Turismo 5 or such), I don't photoshop or video edit, BUT, I plan on setting up a nice Digital Audio Workstation (compose, arrange, use lots of virtual synths and effects (VST's), mix with MIDI, etc...)

Should not be a problem, just verify your motherboard manufacturer is still supporting XP with drivers for the hardware you are looking to purchase.
Think that covers your questions?

Yess! Thank you!
But now with the SB embargo, I think I'll just wait for Z68...
Will OC and get the internal GPU.
$150-$200 is way above what I was expecting to pay for a video card.
I was hoping for under $100, and maybe even under $75...

Now I'm just curious to find out if running the internal GPU on a SB will limit it's OC ability (i.e. heat or bottlenecks). But I guess we'll just see in a few months, when systems start coming out.

Thanks!

OT: Since when is Gran Turismo 5 on the PC?

Back on topic, if you don't do much gaming, just get yourself a GTS 250 or something, or pickup an open box video card:
