You don't need to buy a network card, you can get a Samsung F3 for WAY less then the RE4. At 720p, you don't need to get blistering fast cards, something like a 460/6870 would do well at that resolution.

ukieman you need to get a 2600K not 2600, the K gives you overclocking ability.

yes that is good enough, or you could get a 560ti

GDDR5 is memory DDR, it has G infront of it its not desktop memory.

Oh no, you definitely should. It's a HUGE performance boost, and very future-proof, which should mean a lot to you since you're a novice and might not want to upgrade every year.

Also, I recommend the HD 6950 instead of the 560 Ti. It can 'unlock' to an HD 6970 and that is the second most powerful single-GPU card in the world.

You mentined a HDD, but not which one. I'd also recommend a Samsung Spinpoint F3 with 1TB storage.

There is no need for a P67 chipset on the mobo when you are not ocerclocking.
IF you are overclocking you need an i7-2600K series CPU. The K has to be there, otherwise you cannot overclock.
The H67 chipset has integrated graphics (The P67 has not) which may become useful somehow, but I wouldn't recommend it when you're buying a discrete graphics card anyway.
You cannot overclock your CPU on the H67 chipset, however, you can on the P67. That's where the P67 and H67 mainly differs.


If you want to overclock in the future, switch out the i7-2600 with an i7-2600K. Much difference.
Swich out the harddrive as well (to the mentioned Samsung F3).
And, at last, the graphics card. Either the GTX 460, the Radeon HD 6850 or the Radeon HD 6950 (which can be unlocked, as mentioned).

That should be it...


The GTX 460 is very decent for your 720p resolution, I'd recommend that.
The Radeon HD 6950 (unlocked to a Radeon HD 6970) is pretty good as well, but perhaps a bit overkill at your resolution. It's a splendid GPU, however. But I'm not sure how much you'll need the extra performance. Perhaps on the long run you will.


Choice is yours, depends on what you need ..

I jsut purchased a gigabyte p67 ud-5 motherboard for an upcoming build and was wondering if it would make sense to rma it and wait for the z68 gigabyte board? Are there any real advantages other than the integrated graphics and caching to a ssd? Is it possible to utilize the integrated graphics and a dedicated gpu? Sorry for hijacking but I am a little confused.
