Cart is loaded up but a couple questions.
I already have a GTX570 and OCZ Vertex 2 120gb SSD and HDD's for storage and I'm using a Corsair HX650 PSU.
Primary use will be for gaming.

I'm getting the P67 instead of Z68 as I don't really like the addition of a mobo GPU on the Z68 mobos and it saves a few bucks. Is going P67 a mistake?

This keyboard and headset are very new to the market and there is really no information or reviews out there.
Kind of wary about buying untests product but it is Corsair and they have generally produced quality product so I'll roll the dice on these = mistake?
So that's about it = any ideas?
I'm very new to the computer world, so take my comments with a pound of salt.
I've been asking the same questions as you about P67 mobos.
I'm getting a Z68, only because, if my GPU ever fries, I can utilize the onboard GPU in the processor, and at least still use my computer.
As I understand it, the onboard graphics is in the chip, not the motherboard. The Z68 board has the ability to use it. Am I mistaken?
Thanks for the replies.
I have a GTX570 that I use now and a GTX260 and a 8800GTS and other old video cards so the lack of a video card shouldn't be a problem for me.
Only thing I can really say is that I would go for Z68 vice P67. The only thing missing from P67 is SSD caching and ability to use integrated graphics (which I see you don't care about). SSD caching I have read about, but can't remember off hand how effective it is. Might be something to consider before making the final decision on MOB.
The OP already has a SSD, and is probably planning to use it as a boot drive, rather than a caching drive. The only reason to go Z68 in my books is if you want the caching. I prefer a boot drive config myself.
Thanks for the replies. :)
For headset, try out:
NCIX.com - Buy Teknmotion Yapster Gaming Headphones Microphone IN-LINE Volume White - TekNmotion - TM-YW100A - in Canada
Whole lot cheaper. (I think I even price matched down to about $18) I think they sound fine, especially considering the price I paid. The feel good, cover my ears (are slightly tight for my taste, but only very slightly, and I have a big head). Treble is good, bass is good (though you can't feel it in your gut, which is why I don't like headphones)
You are now probably wondering about my background in "listening" to stuff. I have never been a big fan of headphones, but I do have a stereo system I've been upgrading and playing with for the last 15 years. And I was on sound crew for plays in high school. So, I would say I'm not a complete noob when it comes to sound, but, granted, by no means an expert.
At the very least, you could get these until you see more reviews of your chosen headset.
