I think you are correct in looking at ASRock. Great stuff. I have has X58, P55, P67, and AM2 boards from them and have loved them all.

I'm on the p67 Pro from ASUS, and it's not terrible...though I have encountered some issues with using the XMP on RAM (every so often, wouldn't boot...tried two different sets and updated BIOS; I manually entered the timings and everything was fine, though) but the repeated-booting problem isn't much of a bother.
Anyway, it's a fine board as far as I can tell. Seems like if you can manage to get Z68 for a similar price, though...*shrug*

Check this article out: nvidia nf200 x16 x16 vs intel x8 x8 p67

it actually shows the p67 x8 beating the nf200 x16 setup. I think there would be little real world difference between the two, so I see no need getting a more costly board with the nf200 chip.

so between the
ASRock P67 EXTREME4 GEN3
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813157265

and

ASUS P8Z68-V
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131729

which would you guys go with?
am i reading this correct on the asrock, that its pcie 2.0 slot is only x4? im assuming you cant use 6870 card on its 3.0 slot.

the asrock is cheaper and seems to have more features though. however the asus has a combo deal with windows so they end up about the same cost.
this will be my first build,will either of them overclock easier?

^^ beat me to it
That board does not have an NF200 chip so it will still run dual cards at 8x8x.

Asus has 3 year warranty vs. 2 years for ASRock. Otherwise they are both a good choice.

Z68 chipset is somewhat pointless... SSD caching is a niche feature and onboard gpu support is only of benefit to those who don't have a discrete video card.

I was in the same position you were a couple days ago and ended up picking up this combo and it shipped today:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboD...t=Combo.660241

Seems like a good enough deal and reviews seem good on the board. We'll see.

I would recommend the mobo that is in my sig. only because iwe had no problems with it, overclocks great. Has a lot of options and came at a modest price tag.
