help with maximus extreme-z

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys I'm look into getting, either the maximus iv extreme or the maximus iv extreme-z one is p67 and the other is z68. which one is the better buy? I know the z68 board has something to do with on-board graphics, but looking at the board I don't even see an output for graphics like the other z68 boards have. is this the only major difference between the 2 boards? or does the extreme-z posses something else the extreme p67 doesn't and why doesn't the extreme-z have a display output port?

If you are getting a graphics card (lol) then get the p67

understood, but wheres the output for the "onboard" video? lol. Looking at the io ports in the back...it's missing....am i just completely missing something here? although it does seem like it's sports something called lucid or something that the other boards do not have.

not all z68 boards take advantage of onboard video.. this is an example of one(from the looks of the pics).. you still need a discrete graphics card
