Just needs a graphics card, optical drive and OS. Good deal for a build with the latest gen Intel chipset. Also have the added benefit of easily upgrading to i7 in the future (if needed).

Nice spot as I assumed all H67 boards would have the video outputs, seems strange not to have them!

Doesn't need a graphics card as the H67 chipset and sandybridge will do it for you. Bought all my i7 2600K and 6870 video card and bits from scan. All arrived quickly and worked straight off. Recommend them.

HOT...
Just bear in mind the no GFX card/operating system/dvd drive

But the motherboard appears to have no VGA/DVI/HDMI or Displayport?!

Great name for a case

I've just built a core i3 2100 machine for work and it doesnt have a video connector on the motherboard.

No you're right no socket. How very strange, guess that's why it's cheap, must be trying to get rid of them. Still a good deal though.

It’s an ATX H67 board without any Video outputs but 10 USB 2 ports on the back panel – Gigabyte. Bizarre!

Top of the line Asus board doesnt have a connector either.

That's uses the P67 chipset which doesn't support graphics anyway whereas the H67 does.

FYI no overclocking with this rig. I was having a geeky discussion with someone else here. I've recently changed my mind and I reckon it's worth going for the cheaper last gen i3 rig they have on there, and overclocking the bejesus out of it.

My Desktop has just crashed & burned - may invest in this.

Good deal indeed,keep in mind however, that the i3 2100 cannot be overclocked
You need to get the i5 or i7 or the k versions.

If you are after overclocking the Intel Core i3 540 Dual Core Combo today may be a better deal.

Its only the K versions that overlclock if you have a P series board and not a H (like this)
And if you buy a none K series i5 or i7 they still won't overclock

Looks very good for the price. I'm looking for a cheap intel i series pc at the moment, however I'd be inclined to buy one with USB 3 ports.

Worth noting i3 2100 has hyper-threading and it has pushed the solid AMD Phenom II 955 out of the best cpu for the money price bracket. So this will make for a very competant gaming rig once the graphics has been added.

Hot! Thanks for posting.

The standard (non K) i5 & i7 series will over-clock a little bit in a P67 board (not H67) by allowing the multiplier to be increased by up to 4 above the stock max Turbo Boost multi; how geeky is that sentence. X)
The i3 don’t even support that limited speed bump.

Wondering if this could run Hackingtosh? my pc's pretty old now. Any reccomendations for graphics cards?

I agree, but still with an i5 you could do a limited unlock

The MSI GTX 460, I have the same card. It overclocks like a beast but is pretty much silent and I always find Nvidia's drivers work a little better than ATI's.
