"new mobo choice"


          

I used to run a 2500k i5 cpu overclocked to 3.8GHz on a Gigabyte P67 board, which I damaged by overtorquing a hsf. Been using a substitute pc, but want to reinstate the original pc, and plan to replace the damaged board. I've found some used Gigabyte candidates on AliExpress, in the $50 range, with free shipping and returns. Can't find the identical board, but did find some P67 Gigabyte boards. Also found some Z68 Gigabyte boards, which I understand will work.

Any advantage to the Z68 boards for a non gamer?. I don't really do anything computer intensive. Would I be best sticking with P67 for conformity? My backups are compatible with dissimilar hardware, so I won't have that to worry about.

System is W10, 32 bits, 4G ram, 240G SSD.

Thanks in advance.

No not even if you're a gamer it's more about quicksync support (transcoding video) ssd caching which is the use of a small ssd to cache most used files for quicker response. It's just in the used market being newer it'll have less miles on it.
