My Ram is G.SKILL Ripjaws 2GB LinkPossibly as they are the same processor socket but there are other things to consider based on the rest of the system, but why would you want to downgrade the motherboard? Your current/old motherboard is a newer and better Z75 chipset while the "new" one is lesser and older P67. I'd look for another Z75 or a Z77 motherboard.
What processor, video card(s), RAM, etc do you have?
This may be a better choice but only if you have an add-in graphics card and not integrated graphics which the P67 motherboard also doesn't support but the Z75 does: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIAA0S3ZG4908
Well the Z77 is a $210 dollar difference so is there anything cheaper I could get or should I just go with the P67?Well the P67 would support your hardware, although it only supports PCI-express 2.0 instead of your video cards 3.0 interface; probably wouldn't make much difference. Overall the chipset is a bit slower with more limitations. Personally I'd go with a Z77 based board. There's a chance that Windows won't boot on the older chipset as well.
So do you think the P67 is my only option?Found more reviews for it when Newegg themselves carried it; it does appear it had some network issues so maybe not the best one to get after all. The P67 is compatible with the hardware you listed and there's not much available in socket 1155 that's better due to age so maybe that is your only option unless you can find one on Amazon or somewhere else.
Which motherboard and CPU would you recommend? I only use my computer really for youtube videos and playing a couple of games, League of Legends, and whatever low end game I feel like playing that month :/Both motherboards support PCI-Express graphics card, every motherboard does.
Personally it's a fair bit of money to put into a 6 year platform, I'd go with an upgrade and get new 5th generation processor and matching motherboard.
