I'm currently using it to host a few virtual machines on vmware for software testing, packaging, and deployment at work. When I get more time, I'll be using it for things that are much more personal to me which is web development, graphic design, and photography. I just need to find the time, work and classes are killing me right now.

Quick question, the Gigabyte P67 mobo I was going to buy went out of stock at newegg as I was ordering. Will this ASUS P67 work with my i7 2600k build?

Sandybridge chipsets have an issue and are hence going out of stock, you might want to wait for the new sandybridge chipset based motherboards to come in.
