Yeah, the only way p67 and z68 are different is through z68's "features", but I certainly won't be switching over. Definitely not worth the money + time.

Unless it gets to a point where costs balance as P67 phases out. If you had a choice between a P67 at $199 and a Z68 at $199, which would you choose?

Hmm I wonder what the numbers were for the P67 boards.

Its worth buying a Z68 if you do not have a P67 system. I've read that the Z68 not only has extra features but supposedly fixes the sataport problem and other problems the P67 has.

I for one would rather go for a Z68 board in hopes they do not have problems vs these reboot loop and sataport HDD deterioration problems P67 boards have...

I'm looking into a Z68 and a new processor.
