Hey guys, ordering a mobo next week, wanted to know your opinion. What's better, the Asus P8Z68-V Pro or the Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD4?

What do you plan to do with it?

The Giga you chose isn't a true Z68... but it still has SSD Cache and RST..

The V PRO on the otherhand is a real Z68 board with video outputs and QuicSync support

I have an ASUS V PRO and so far liking it.. but hopefully youll get more inputs from the other guys..

The only problem I heard about gigabyte is their Reset/boot problems.. IDK if this has now been resolved..

BTW, just choose this board instead of the GIGA board you posted:

GIGABYTE GA-Z68XP-UD3P

I believe this one's a true Z68
