If you have a large SSD, you won't benefit at all from the boards SSD caching, given that it only works in conjunction with traditional magnetic HDD's, not other SSD's.

My point is that they skimp out from making it a genuine Z68 board. Isn't that what the main difference is between P67 chipset, providing video output via the board?

Edit: what I found...
- has video support for the integrated cpu graphics
- can overclock the gpu accordingly (can overclock gpu, cpu, and RAM)
- support ssd caching

But, many Gigabyte boards at same price as other Z68 boards don't include the video support.

If you want to use it with a LCD monitor, don't you need an adapter to convert to DVI then?

It still seems cheap that they don't add the DVI output...

Also, Gigabyte doesn't utilize an UEFI bios... those are just minor things to you maybe but I question why Gigabyte went that route...

Nevermind, I notice more monitors use HDMI and many newer video cards have the HDMI port besides DVI and often, DisplayPort.

So, I guess I am still wondering what happens if you don't have a monitor with HDMI... you just use the hdmi to dvi adapter? Does it work?

I am interested in adding options to the motherboards list but the 'no-UEFI' for Gigabyte 1155 motherboards is still a bad negative, imho.
