My System Specs

Default Recommendation(s)

Hey, I have been planing a budget for a PC for awhile now, I am currently stuck on a motherboard... I am getting a i7 2600 (very cheap from a friend), yet I have a very very small budget (Cheapest Motherboard out there). With SATA3, I am going to wait till January, or until HD 7900's series are released (Hopefully). Would a Z68A-D3-B3 be decent? I already have a budget for the rest but I know I won't be upgrading it later on (Cause it taken so long, I just want one)

I would like any advice right now. I'd buy from NCIX, but after shipping it costs more, and there are none near my region :(

I would go with a P67 board as the features Z68 offers, you likely don't need. P67 boards can be found for a fair bit less too. You may even find a used board here in our BST area.
