Also why the deluxe? The PRO/ vanilla are cheaper and near enough the same. See:



According to the table above the deluxe doesn't use the onboard gpu......
Sure about that...?...It has Lucid Virtu support, so it should use onboard gpu...

Im not 100% sure, but afaik not all Z68 motherboards have the onboard GPU, Lucid vitu maybe, but as you can see right at the bottom of the table it say's, no gpu.

There is no connectivity for onboard video.

I'm beginning to think you're right...thanks for the info because I totally missed it...

Gonna have to go with Asus. Was initially looking at Gigabyte boards for my own upgrade as well but I received some bad feedback. Apparently, it's a hit and miss thing with GB boards and SB. And that hybrid UEFI is somewhat of a turn-off too.

Best you research as much as you can with Google and if you still can't decide, just check which color scheme you prefer.

Both are great boards. You can't go wrong with either. Both have had their good and bad feedback. I don't see how anyone can say that either one of the boards are "hit or miss"...doesn't make logical sense to me.

No worries, as I said before, just get the V PRO or standard V, it's pretty much the same as the deluxe and it's a little less expensive. Also regarding the VRM design, I pushed my chip to just over 5.65ghz with an 12+2 VRM design, I've seen 5.6ghz+ overclocks on motherboard that have 8+2. So on that note, anything above 8+2 is a bonus, 8+2 is more thena capable.
