Don't be mad at him. He's just linking to my sticky, which I spent months on. (thanks, btw!)
So you want an opinion on the board?
Well, there are only three differences in the experience.
1.) Manufacturer quality.
- ASUS > Gigabyte = eVGA > MSI > ASRock > Biostar
2.) BIOS Quality.
- ASUS > eVGA > MSI > ASRock > Gigabyte > Biostar.
Gigabyte is second to last because they don't have UEFI.
3.) The feeling you get when you receive/open the box.
Personally, I love Gigabyte's design on the P67A-UD7 box.
It's beautiful, a pleasure to hold and open. The one box I thought of keeping as a souvenir.
That's all anyone can tell you.
Motherboards are just.. motherboards. They sit down there with the rest of the components on top of them. Unless they're broken, you'll most likely forget which one you have pretty quick.
