If it makes a difference, I bought Gigabyte for the HDMI and the looks.

Goodluck!

BTW, I take it back with ASUS' included 3.0 USB Bracket.. it can reach the back of the case easily to any of the CASE back bracket. Even with a DUAL, dual slot card config.

The UD5 does.

I'm currently awaiting for that GA-Z68XP-UD4 to arrive in the UK. Looks like a sweet board to have.

Gigabyte cheapens out again. Z68 mobo for over $200 and NO DVI port again. Have fun throwing your money away.
