P67 or H67 for budget gaming build w/ i3 2100.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey all, I'm currently in the midst of converting my coworker's old prebuilt Dell (yuck) into a halfway decent gaming machine. I've decided to build around an i3 2100 and was wondering which chipset would be best to go with.

Obviously not being able to overclock on an H67 wouldn't be an issue since the i3 2100 is locked anyways but are there any other important features I'm going to be missing out with P67? Cost is a big factor here, which is why I'm using this cpu. I've seen that the H67 are generally much cheaper than P67 so I'm kinda leaning towards that.

Thanks

thats pretty much it! also p67 is for dedicated video cards because you cant use the intergrated video ! With the h67 you can use the onboard graphics if you want!

Well that's simple then. I will be using a dedicated card for this build. Currently running my old hand me down 9600GT rolleyessmileyanim.gif: But it will be replaced after upgrading to a more recent platform.

Guess my best bet is to just find the best H67 board I can find then at a decent price. Thanks!
