Hi guys !

Im building my PC and im getting hard time. Didnt thought it would be so hard to decide on parts so i need ur help.

Im on a tight budget cuz i changed my PSU to XFX PRO650W.

i want a mobo for i3-2105 with 8 Gb ram Xms3 1600 ,4Hdd each 250, 1 dvd writter and after 1-2 months gtx 560ti or gtx 580.

Also i will overclock my i5-2500k after 1.5 years and no planing for sli but better if it has it .If CF means cheaper i will change my gpu so np :)

What mobo do u suggest. ?

Will you benefit in any way from Z68 ? I don't see anything to get excited about but decide if you will be reading this:

Are you planning to keep this box for more than 2 years ? If so, I'd pick a Board with a 3 year warranty

$180 Z68 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131792

$150 after $20 MIR for the P8P67 pro + an additional $15 off your 2500k in the combo

With budget being tight, I'd definitely get the 560 Ti over the 580:

1. The factory OC'd 560 Ti's in SLI give ya 40% more fps than a single 580 at $40 - $70 less investment
2. Two 580's...
That is a great board for the budged minded buyers.

2. Two 580's ($1000) only give ya 10% more fps than two 560 Ti's ($430 - $460)
3. Two 560's only need a 850 watter at extreme overclocks; two 580's want 1000 minimum and there's few 1000 watters of high quality....even Corsair's venerable HX series (all but this size get 10.0 performance ratings from jonnyguru) have a couple of clunkers in the 1000 and 1050 (8.0 / 8.5 ratings) size range.
4. Two factory OC'd 560 Ti's in SLI get 862 fps in Guru3D's game test suite / two factory OC'd 6950's get 759 fps IN CF.

The 850 watt XFX Core Edition is only $25 more than the 650 watter....spend the $25 now to allow for SLI upgarde in the future:

@sosofom im already considering that mobo :)

@jack nice reply bro!

Im buying from amazon.it or amazon.de better from DE so the prices arnt the same.

Im planning to keep that for a while so i want a good mobo so later i just need to upgrade to i5-2500k . Also my board must have hdmi or vga output cuz i will stay with HD 3000 for 3 months till i get the 560ti.

Hopefully with the launch of the nvidia 6xx and 7xx prices can drop :)

P8z68v-pro or Asrock E3G3 ? :)or anything else?

So i would appriciate giving me a mobo from amazon.de :)

You already earned the Best Answer :) :)

Edit :79Euros xfx pro 650 delivers up to 814W so it must be enough ? Also the 83Euro Pro750 delivers up to 931w so ?

Consider that i am staying with Onboard Gpu ! Can the E3G3 Asrock allow me to Oc OnBoard Gpu as the P8z68-V/gen 3 do like the IGpu ? Need to make this clear :)
