There's no real reason to in your case, you have more than one gpu. If one dies, then you can use just the one until your other gets back from rma.

Besides, ssd caching, while a cool concept, is really pointless on a higher end chipset. No one is going to pay a butt load of money on a motherboard, only to get a dinky 10-30gb ssd.

I'll probably skip it unless it offers massive improvements (i.e. 6 cores OC to 6ghz on air)

It doesn't, all it really offers over p67 is onboard video and ssd caching, that's it. It is still based on the 1155 socket and will still have the same range of high end boards as p67(most likely).

i haven't started my new build yet so might as well wait a few more weeks and I think these will have 16x/16x crossfire right?

Only time you see a larger difference then the 1%-2%. Unless you are running some extreme high resolution {2560 x 1600}. When you run something synthetic, benchmark, etc. Then it will make a difference. But real world it will be small unless the high res is used.

Upgrading to Z68 will yield no real world benefits for me, P67 <3
