Dark Knight and 2500K? - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Z68 is just P67 with video output. ..That you'll end up disabling in BIOS anyway, since you have an HD 4830. So no point waiting for Z68. Just grab one of the Gigabyte P67A boards, for some awesome overclocking.

He's already stated no overclocking so pointless comment.

However that being said, go with the standard 2500 since you're not overclocking.

Sorry to have mislead you....this PC will be returned to stock before nephew gets it.. The SB will run @ 4.4/4.5 and my video card (4830) is giving me trouble. That's why I might want the Z68...so I don't have to buy a GPU that I really don't need.

I have ordered another GPU to replace the faulty one in this rig...so nephew won't have any problems.
