    Default Help me to choose a good Mobo/Processor pair

    Budget :
    35K for Mobo/Processor pair.

    Purpose:
    Mainly gaming. It ll be used for educational purpose too. So, might sometimes have to keep running few VMs. Performance on VM doesnt matter. If i need more, i ll give that OS a drive and a boot slot.

    Already have:
    Sapphire 5850HD ( almost new, not gonna change in couple of years),
    TT TR2 RX 550W
    ASUS VH226H 21.5", 1920x1080. I wont be running games more then this res or add another display.
    WD cavier black 1TB + another storage hdd.

    My thoughts:
    Since Core i7 - 2600K + P67 gonna cross my Budget, i have to discard the idea. Someone bought "core i7 2600 + gigabyte H67MA-D2H B3" for 33800 couple of days ago. So, this is, as high i can go. I am not into numbers...i am not gonna show, i have xx fps or something like this. I want my FPS games run good. Since 2600 (non-K) cannot be overclocked (much) and HT sometimes even degrade performance fetching unnecessary instructions ( according to this ) i think, i ll be okay with i5-2500K with a p67 Mobo and HT penalty, if have any can be overcome with OC.
    But the question is , is 2500K available at BD now ?

    On other thread, AMD Bulldozer is coming 7th june. I am not gonna buy before 8, i am sure. But in present situation , AMD is not upto the mark with these intel 2nd gen. Dont know, if BD gonna change this.

    So, are those 2500K s available in the market now ? Do you have any better suggestion for me ? Please let me know.

    2500K+P67 is a good pair.
    But I don't think 2500K is available in BD.

    Go for 2600+P67. I saw some B3 stepped motherboard ads in Global Brand today. You can check the new boards out.

    Isnt buying p67 for non-k is overkill? Whats the point of having p if i cannot overclock? And for 2600 vs 2500, i ll be ending up spending 10k more for just 100MHz and 2MB bump. HT doesnt help that much either, when amd s 6 core cant help, whats the point of having 8 threads?
