It is more than enough to play all the games in 1280X1024 and in fact can play every thing in 1980X1080 or full HD resolution.

Just one suggestion, get any motherboard based on Intel H67 chipset as H61 is a very basic budget mobo and will severely affect the future upgrade paths.

Get the Intel DH67VR-B3 @ 4.8K. Core i5 2400 is available in smcinternationa at a price of 9.3K.

This board has 4 ram slots (compared to 2 of H61), USB 3.0 and SATA 3 (6 Gbps) support.

So the total price will be around (9.3+4.8)=14.1K.

H61 boards are basically for SB i3s and budget i5s. You should get atleast a H67 like cilus has suggested.

Dunno about the cheap or not, but availability is best at Sujata Computers, Nal Stop Chowk, Karve Road, Pune. Where are you located ? PM me.

Both will play well with your games. Get a H67 as suggested by Cilus. It is worth it. Also check for the RAM speed supported by the mobo.

There is no point to plug an Non-K processor with a P67 motherboard. P67 motherboards don't have the onboard output and you have to use a dedicated card. But the problem is as a result you will loose the benefit of Intel's Quicksync technology which is very handy in Audio/Video editing. Other thing is you won't get the benefit of P67 motherboard....Overclocking your K series processors like hell to fetch the extra performance as you are buying a Non-K processor.

so cilus, which will be better bet ?

1. z68 mobo plus 2500k/2600k and no gpu

2. h67 plus 2500k/2600k with high end gpu.

I am not including z68 and gpu together, since it will go above average budget imho.

sorry abt short lingo but i m typing from cell.

Try to get a P67 mobo then. Intel Original P67 mobos will be available within 8K. Quicksync is good but apart from Video encoding there is no such use as of now a days and regarding SSD caching, you can add a SSD of 60 GB of higher later and use it as normal OS drive to get better performance without using SSD caching.
But P67 mobo will give you the benefit of overclocking the K series processor.

Exactly what I had in mind. You are perfectly right about your guess of price of Intel boards, they are available at 7k at bitfang.com

Thanks :) & What a co-incidence of you posting about SSD. Primeabgb.com todays deal gives 60GB SSD of OCZ at Rs.6k. :eek: till 7 PM

^^ Get what you have considered first...i5 2400 along with the Intel H67 board I've suggested....more than enough..especially for gaming at 1280X1024 resolution.
