I would like to know which P67 is the best before I pull the trigger. This is my first gaming machine. I may do some AutoCad works and computer programmings.

Which board is the best? What are you trying to do with it? What price range? I consider the Asus P8P67 WS Revolution to be the best motherboard out there, especially for the price, though the ASUS Maximus IV Extreme-R3 is great as well.

I would say any of the Maximus IV boards, just got my Gene-Z the other day and haven't had any complaint with it. Are you planning on overclocking at all? That really is the biggest question.

If you are going to go with a P67 make sure you are not going to get an SSD. The SSD caching of the Z68 helps speed things up nicely if you have a large enough SSD. I would say it is worth the extra money to go for a newer board vs older tech.

Why would I need SSD caching if I have a large enough SSD for storage?

Again, it all depends on your needs, if your doing AutoCAD the Asus P8P67 WS Revolution is a work station board that supports up to 4X Quadro GPU's, its IMO the best board out there, especially considering the price, most SB motherboards will clock about the same - but again, you need to look for the feature sets you want as some boards that work best for one thing might not be the best for another

I don't just blindly recommend the WS Revolution, I previously had it before downgrading my system to what you currently see running 3X 580's, i7 2600k clocked @ 4.8GHZ, everything ran stable, and the board shows some of the best scores of any board for latency, etc.

Let me clarify my requirements. This is a major gaming machine. I would use it for occasionally auto-cad work (nothing too heavy) and non-graphical computer programmings (daily).

I am in need of the new machine very soon. I would be appreciated if you could give me the exact P67 brand/model.

I don't have a Sandy Bridge CPU, yet, so I can't give any advice based off experience. I have been poking around in this thread though, and if you haven't already seen it, it might be of help to you.
