Looking For a Motherboard That Fits My Build - Page 3

post #21 of 24
Well you wouldn't want to go with a x58 setup because you'd have to purchase DDR3 triple channel memory. That leaves your options with the p/h55 setup (1156 socket) or p/h 67 (1155 socket.) Obviously P67 would be the most appealing as it's the top performer right now.

2600k $314.99

P8P67 $154.99

$469.98 before shipping on newegg. This is just about the best performance you can get for the money you're wanting to spend. Your ram will work for this setup so you won't have to buy anything else to get up and running.

Hmm the setup you just send me is, 270 euros for the Intel I7-2600k and 130 for the motherboard, but benchmarks show no diffrence in peformance with games in i7-2600k and i5-2500k only in music editing and video editing and stuff and the i5-2500k is 188 euros here thats 82 diffrence and if i get a mobo something like the P8P67 Deluxe or maybe a ASRock Fatal1ty one or the Extreme6 or something: my first plan was i5-2500k with ASUS MAXIMUS IV EXTREME this would be arround 500 (i think 503 total) but i think that might be overkill? i want to get something good i can stick to for the next 5 years my current setup couldnt do that... (the setup before all the parts i got now the CPU and MOBO are the only parts left that i didn't replace yet)

Definitely. If you can score the 2500k for that price then definitely go for it! That combined with the Maximus will be monstrous and should last you the 5 years you're talking about... unless your will is weak like mine in which case you'll just upgrade in 2 years anyhow

haha then we have the same though yes i have a weak will anything that seems to score better fps then my setup i want to upgrade to xD but im gonna teach myself not to till games start to run bellow steady 30FPS because games are no fun to play bellow 30FPS ok then its gonna be:

ASUS MAXIMUS IV EXTREME for 319
Intel i7-2500k for 188

Only thing concerning me now is the GPU not sure if i should stick to 1xGTX570 if thats enough for what i want or 2xGTX570 (EVGA SUPERCLOCKED is 315 normal is 300 so 15 more for a superclocked would be a good idea (dont want to overclock the GPU's myself) or 1xHD6990 (price is 599 for the XFX one ASUS one is 619) (because i always wanted an AMD GPU) but maybe i should post this in a diffrent part of the forum anyways thanks everybody!

Thanks All!
Yours Sincerely,
Kevin
