If you're dead set you're going to go with the onboard, then go ahead.

However you said you're going to do editing, what kind of editing would that be? If it's video editing you may actually want a dedicated GPU.

If you own a videocard, the Z68 is a waste of money

If you don't own a videocard, nor want to buy one, then you need the Z68 motherboard

only few video and photo editing i think the on board may survive... yeah i dont want to buy as possible...

now my choices are down to this:
Biostar TZ68A+ will need to wait no stock
Biostar TP67XE $140 + low cost vc
*they said it can oc like high end mobos
ASRock Z68 Extreme4 $205
*bang for the buck
Asus P8Z68-V Pro $249
*the usual good board but heard problems in pci slots bandwidth... dont know full details
