thanks guy

sorry for being a noob

You can buy either P67 or H67, either will work.
If you buy P67, you can't use the CPU's built-in GPU, but you can overclock it.
If you buy H67, you can use the CPU's built-in GPU, but you can't overclock it.

Correct. P67 to OC and H67 to not OC but use the onboard GPU.

I'd definitely buy an H67 board depending on what I needed the computer for. Not so long ago I built a computer for my dad with an H55 board and a Core i3 530, no video card, and it's working great. Since all H55 or H67 boards have a PCIe x16 slot anyway, it's easy to add your own video card. And if you can't overclock... not a big deal with a Sandy Bridge CPU, thing's fast enough as it is.

You don't need to spend extra on RAM for a Sandy Bridge setup. Any DDR3 1333 kit from a good brand will be perfect.

I'd get a P67, and a really cheap GPU, like a £30 one, just to keep you going until you have money for a bad-ass card!
