Where can I find an Asus Gen3 mobo in Canada?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've checked all the spots (Newegg, Canada Computers, tigerdirect) and none seem to have the new Asus z68 Gen3 mobo's... Only the Asrock... I would get the asrock but I want the UEFI bios... Anyone know a place?

Imho, just get an Asrock board. They're former Asus employees and it appears to me, they're doing a decent job. Some good reviews here. They are Gen3 already, too.

Just check the Asrock site or newegg to confirm they have the UEFI Bios. I think most of them do.

For e.g., the ASRock Z68 PRO3-M mobo has an UEFI BIOS and it's about $130 (check newegg for reviews).

I'm looking at Asrock boards for a sandy bridge build myself.

Check around the forums, though, and try asking some Asrock 1155 owners.
