Sandy Bridge Upgrade On The Way!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Well, I went ahead and ordered my SB upgrade.

Keep in mind, budget was $400 MAX Shipped.

I5 2500k $224.99 shipped- I'm hoping to get to 4.5 on stock voltages, but I'm sure it will perform better than my current platform.

Gigabyte GA-P67A-D3-B3 $114.99 + shipping - could not find any reviews on this board, so I'm praying that this will be ok for awhile. Has Cross-Fire capability and ATX sizing..which was my main concern. I don't expect any OCing records, but I'll take the CPU as high as stock voltages will allow.

Corsair Vengence 2x2gb DDR3-1600 $53.99 shipped after instant Coupon - I was going to get G.Skill Snipers, but decided against it when I saw that these had a $5 instant coupon. Didn't get 8gb due to price.

All-in-all...I think I did VERY well for my budget. TOTAL - $401.30 Shipped

Any thoughts, concerns, or comments are always appreciated.

Also, if anyone knows anything about that mobo...please enlighten me!
