You can spend less and get a ASUS Maximus IV Gene-Z for $188 shipped if you have concerns about the P8Z68-V.

Also can checkout the Intel Motherboards section and get some input from owners.
This. Good Motherboard. I don't think you should get a $200+ motherboard with your build.

Look at these prices on Slickdeals.net... seen half of these things on sale in the past month, so if you can wait... or not

Get that Asus DVD drive instead of the HP one... Will run quieter. Has more features. Plus you save $4.
