New Board

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Looking at picking up a new motherboard in the next week or 2, plus 2600k and ram. anyway, i need some help to point me in the right direction for a new board.

so far the boards am looking at are the asus p8p67 pro/deluxe, asus p8z68 v-pro/deluxe or the gigabyte ga-z68xp-ud4.

Once the CPU has broken in I'll start the overclocking. Any help would be appreciated.

Imo, Z68 is waste of money if you don't need integrated graphics and the SSD caching.

Yea, after lookin around the forums and other sites, that's what am thinking too. As I won't be using a ssd and I have no need for the igpu, as I will be using dedicated gpu's.

So, I suppose I have 2 options left:
Asus p8p67 pro
Asus p8p67 deluxe

What additional features does the deluxe have other the pro, apart from the USB box. Basically, is it worth me spending more money on a deluxe board when the pro will perform the same.

Also, any recommendations on ram. Currently looking at corsair vengenance.

Get whatever you feel will satisfy your needs, from what I can see there is not much difference between the pro and deluxe version of the board.
