A board that allows for not just overclocking, but utilizing the onboard Intel graphics of the Sandybridge chip. Since you've got dedicated video cards, this is useless to you.
P67 doesn't allow for utilizing the on-chip graphics.

Then there's the SSD caching capability of the Z68 chipset. This is probably the main difference worth mentioning between P67 and Z68.

I think the P8P67 deluxe will benefit you the most, the p67 saber tooth doesnt have as much features as a p8p67 deluxe.

P8P67 Deluxe and an I5 2500k would suite you very well.
