Help me choose between 2 mobos.

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hello guys. Well, I almost sold my current PC, which means I will FINALLY have enough money to start ordering my parts, and now I need to decide fast things that I haven't decided yet. One of these decisions is the mobo.

I am not sure about these two mobos:
ASROCK Fatal1ty P67 Performance
ASUS P8P67-M PRO
They both are almost athe same price.

I will use my PC for gaming mostly. All kind of games. And a lil bit of video editing.
Here are my other specs:

CPU: Intel Core i5 2500K -
GPU: ASUS ENGTX560
PSU: Corsair CX500
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 2x2GB 1600MHz

Edit: Also, I wanted to say that I don't plan on extreme overclocks. I plan to OC my i5 2500K to 4GHz in the begining. At first I was thinking about the ASUS P8P67-M vanilla, but then I saw these..so please be fast, i need to decide till tomorrow

Edit: Nvm didnt realize that micro atx ASUS was 8x/8x and 8 phase vrms. I would go for the ASUS P8P67-M Pro.

Ok, it seems like ASUS will be the right choice here.
But still, I am appreciating all the answers..

^ I second this. Especially if you like small but great things. will help on cable management, and choosing a really good case (I recommend the NZXT Vulcan, since I use to own it until two days ago). Has awesome Airflow and looks sleek, and has cable management and m-ATX Compatibility. Also, it can house HD 6990's, GTX 580/590 and all those HUGE Cards.
