post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm going to be ordering my part for new computer from newegg tonight should I get asus p8p67 regular version Or pro version ?

I'm not seeing much of much difference between this two board beside Pro having sli/ inte NIC/feature.

I never planing on buying dual gpu in future I heard many people have problem with sli or crossfire.

My budget $690 max

cpu - i5 2500k $225

mother board - $189asus p8p67 pro or regular $160

ram - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231303

gpu - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814161349

what you guys think?

For Ram I'd recommend

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-320-_-Product
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-321-_-Product
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-430-_-Product
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-277-_-Product
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-427-_-Product (supposedly "designed" for Sandy Bridge)

I ultimately went with the one below since my gigantic air cooler didn't have any space at all for the "jaws." For gaming, the difference between CAS 7 and CAS 9 was less than 2 FPS
